I truly did not know what to expect beforehand. The presentation by the Nalagaat Center touched my heart. If you are staying in Tel Aviv, this is a great way to spend the evening.

It is really a unique experience which is moving your out of your comfort zone. I was touched with the environment and people, it allowed to see the other side of yourself and the world.

I was at the "Black out" restaurant, which is completely dark, the waiters are blind, they are so kind and the food is delicious! You need call "Na Lga'at Center" and make a reservation in advance.

This is truly a life-changing experience. Sitting in a pitch black room for dinner with blind waiters/waitresses is an experience that you must not miss. Going into it, I didn't really care much about the food, but I was really impressed with that as well....More

There is nothing like it in the world. The show is heading to New York but I think there is something special about seeing it in the 5000 year old City of Jaffa! The actors are deaf and blind- It's a very moving experience. I...More
