Kfar Rafael is a Remedial Community located in the south of Israel. In our community, adults with special needs live together with foster families and their children, as well as young volunteers from both Israel and abroad. The community is centered on the care for the well-being and development of the residents (“villagers”), and aims to serve their complex and changing needs while allowing each individual to integrate in a rich and full social environment.
Every week the village orchestra is meeting for an hour of music: Listening, singing, playing and improvising. Throughout the year we have worked with the second movement of symphony No. 94 by Josef Hayden, known as "surprise" symphony. The piece was arranged for bells (tone chimes) chime bars, melodica, recorder and cymbals. Towards the end of the year 5 musicians form our staff joined us with flute, clarinet, trombone, cello and double-bass. to watch on a bigger screen click here.
