Tchaikovsky Flashwaltz at Hadassah Hospital

Forty students from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance took a classical approach to the flashmob as they flashwaltzed Tchaikovsky's Waltz of the Flowers at the new Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower in Jerusalem. Doctors, patients and passers-by joined in the fun.

The surprise concert was part of Good Deeds Day, an annual event that originated in Israel in 2007 and now takes place in over 50 countries worldwide. On this day volunteers reach out to the less fortunate and the vulnerable.

The Academy students enjoyed the day so much that they have decided to schedule regular concerts at the hospital. Hadassah Medical Organization treats over one million patients annually, without regard to race, religion or national origin.

The harpist from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance taught National President Marcie Natan some notes.

Dear Hadassah Friends,

Can you imagine a symphonic orchestra at the entrance to your local hospital? That is what I experienced on Sunday as I participated in the Flashwaltz at Hadassah Hospital in honor of Good Deeds Day, Yom Ma'asim Tovim, last Sunday.

The emotion as I watched the ballerina dance with the young woman in the wheelchair plus my pleasure at seeing members of the Society of Major Donors waltzing along to the incredible Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance musicians brought me to new heights in the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Hospital Tower.

The patients got to share as well, as the orchestra and ballerina brought their talent to the floors of the new tower. Share my excitement and joy as you watch this special video and kvell with me.

Marcie E. Natan
Hadassah National President
