Hundreds of Holocaust survivors celebrated Rosh Hashanah with Bar Refaeli, retired Judge Dalia Dorner, Esther Roth Shahamorov, Marina Maximilian, Arik Sinai, Lea Schnirer, Moran Atias and other renowned artists and personalities.

"I really have tears in my eyes," Refaeli said when she saw the Holocaust survivors dancing, one of them in a wheelchair.

Excited guests, some over 90, exclaimed, "We are happy, these events give us the strength to continue."

Holocaust survivors came from all around the country and received gifts for the holiday.

The event was organized by the Association for the Immediate Help for Holocaust Survivors, an organization run by volunteers who aid thousands of Holocaust survivors around the clock.
