The singer Itzik Kala did not sing for four years due to dealing with cancer of the vocal cords. Only in the last few months he returned to appear on the stages. 15 years ago he almost lost his wife in an attack after she was seriously injured in 2012 when terrorists threw stones at her car. She was unconscious for 15 days and the doctors had already told him that “she has no chance”.
