Music and Art Programs
The healing power of music is well known, and it is being used to benefit our members in a number of BFL projects:
3 years ago several of our injured soldiers, led by Rag Hagag, got together to play music. They began writing songs about the pain and difficulty of living with serious injury, their moments of despair, and most importantly, the hope and new changes that they have found for themselves since joining BFL. The Hope for Heroism Music Project was born and the band they formed “Nine Lives” has played all over Israel, as well as in London and Los Angeles.
Nine Lives has found great success and are now an independent band. They are currently in the process of producing their first album.
Inspired by their growth and development, other soldiers have begun learning to play instruments and a music room has been built in our Beit Achim.
