"Yehoshua Phaff performed at a bar mitzvah which took place in our home in Arzei HaBIra, Jerusalem in February 2005. I feel that it was largely because of him that the event was the wonderful success it was. He created a fantastic atmosphere of joy, laughter, and celebration. I had been worried that for boys of this age, a clown wouldn't be interesting enough, but Yehoshua Phaff was an absolute pro. He knew exactly how to lovingly engage every single kid. I was so glad we found him.
I enthusiastically recommend Mr. Phaff. On a scale of 1-10, I'd give him a 10."

The feedback from your performance at our son’s Bar Mitzvah was absolutely great! The kids were spellbound and the adults were really entertained! A great mixture of tricks for all, with fantastic audience participation which was crucial to making the Simcha a big success!
Just to say a BIG thank you for keeping our guests so well entertained during the Bar and Bat Mitzvah party at Ramat Rachel last week during our visit to Israel- we really appreciate all the fantastic magic you did- the kids are still talking about it & it was really enjoyed by all! Thanks again- we'll certainly recommend you to others!
Keep well, Ari, Talya & all the Portnois London
Over Succoth, when we celebrated our daughter Isabel's Bat Mitzvah at Shalva we had the pleasure of having you provide our entertainment there. You arrived well before the party to set up and you began entertaining as soon as even a small group of people crowded around you. Your tricks were funny, interesting and all pretty amazing! You were able to intrigue all audiences - young and old alike, the challenged children of Shalva, and you were especially patient with our young son who was eager to be at your side almost the entire time. Your happy demeanor made you a pleasure to work with.
We highly recommend your services to anyone interested in juggling and magic shows.
Good luck on your future jobs and perhaps we'll see you next time we're in Israel!
