Just ahead of the Chanukah Holiday and right before the club gets back to league action, six Maccabi Tel Aviv players made sure to find time to do some good deeds. Avi Rikan, Eliran Atar, Eyal Golasa, Dor Micha, Yonatan Cohen and Omer Atzily arrived at the “Dana” Children’s Hospital and met with the children and their families before the Holiday.

Yonatan Cohen spoke about visiting the hospital:
“It’s great that we have the opportunity to bring joy and put a smile on the children’s faces. That’s the most important thing as it puts a lot of things into proportion. Any time that there’s an opportunity to do this, I’m happy to be involved.”
About this Saturday’s match against Maccabi Petah Tikva:
“Every match that we play isn’t easy and we always prepare properly as the staff makes sure that we are ready to go.”
The players met with many children throughout the corridors of the hospital and handed out Maccabi shirts, driedels and chocolate money. They also took pictures and spoke to the families giving them strength during their difficult times.
