My name is Evan Klein, and I will be celebrating my Bar Mitzvah on May 26, 2017, in Jerusalem. For my Mitzvah project, I would like to raise money for the Israel Sports Center for the Disabled. Ever since I can remember, sports have been an integral part of my life. I have been a competitive swimmer since the age of 7, and I also enjoy track, cross country and downhill skiing. I watched the video on the website of an 11 year old boy named Max, and I immediately felt a connection to him. He explained that all of the young athletes at the Center, are encouraged to swim every day because it helps with their development. I feel passionately that all children should have access to the same opportunities that I have been so lucky to have. This is why I am so excited about being able to help these athletes in any way that I can. Please help me by supporting this amazing organization.
