Dear and distinguished friends,

I am moved to see so many friends here tonight, many of which have stood by me, as I have stood by them. Together we made a long and thrilling journey.

 I greatly appreciate that you have chosen to celebrate the birthday of a man whose only sin was to grow a year older. I know you have come to Jerusalem from around the world and from across the country to pay tribute, with me, to our people, to the State of Israel, and to Tikun Olam. Thank you all.




















President Peres to the children:

 "I want to tell you that in our eyes you are heroes fighting for life, carrying hope."

 Raphael, one of the children, who suffers from a rare muscle disease to President Peres and Barbra Streisand:

 It's a great privilege to be here and it was my wish to meet you and Barbra Streisand. You give me strength, optimism and hope."

 The President of the State of Israel, Shimon Peres, and Barbra Streisand today fulfilled the wishes of 20 children suffering from life threatening illnesses, as part of a special meeting that took place today at the President's Residence in Jerusalem, with 20 children from the 'Make-A-Wish' foundation which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses.
