About Logan Zgodny Mitzvah Project

My name is Logan Zgodny, I will become a Bat Mitzvah on June 1, 2019. This past December I traveled to Israel with my Grandparents, aunt, uncle and my four boy cousins.  One day they said we were going somewhere to play wheelchair basketball.  I was definitely reluctant to go.  I was thinking that while I like basketball,  volleyball is really my sport!  But I went.  As soon as we arrived and observed what was happening at the Israel Sport Center for the Disabled, I was SO impressed!  I had the best time playing with a professional wheelchair basketball player.  We all couldn’t believe how amazing he was! He had us all get in wheel chairs and try it out.  I thought it would be really easy to play and I couldn’t believe how hard it was.  It really gave me more of a perspective of how hard it would be to be in a wheelchair. This experience moved me so much that I have decided for my mitzvah project to raise money for this wonderful organization that provides happiness for so many.  I will be organizing an exercise class to help raise money to help provide more wheelchairs for those that need them.
