Josh Levin's Mitzvah Project
For my Bar Mitzvah project, I am raising awareness and money for the Israel ParaSport Center. I was fortunate enough to visit The Center with my family in Israel in December where I was able to witness the magic and impact of this organization firsthand. The Center offers programs and opportunities for kids and adults to help them overcome their disabilities, primarily through sports. They run professional sports leagues, including wheelchair basketball and rugby along with Paralympic sports such as table tennis, wheelchair tennis and boccia. I met 13-year-old Yohonatan who plays international table tennis, and I found it cool to play against him and understand how he overcame his disability through sports. I am creating a video of my experience at the center and trying to raise money for a new wheelchair by creating a March Madness bracket.
