Ben Siwak Mitzvah Project

Hello,

         

My name is Ben Siwak. In honor of my bar mitzvah, I chose to do a mitzvah project.  “Mitzvah” means “good deed” in Hebrew.  Two of my favorite things are sports and Israel.  I have always felt badly for children with disabilities that can’t play sports like I can.  So, for my mitzvah project, I chose to help the Israel Sports Center for the Disabled, which combines all of these that are important to me.

 

          When I was in Israel this summer, I went to the ISCD to see how they help children with disabilities play sports.  I even played wheelchair basketball and ping-pong with some kids there.  I also watched some kids play tennis and swim.  It is a really cool place!  The kids that I played with love sports just like I do, so it made me feel good to help them. 

 

          The director of the program told me that they need more sports wheelchairs, but they are very expensive.  They cost $2500 each.  I want to help the ISCD get more so that more kids with disabilities can enjoy playing sports.  My goal is to raise $10,000 to pay for four new sports wheelchairs.  I hope that my family and friends can help me reach my goal. I am donating some of my bar mitzvah money to help too. 

 

Thank you for supporting my mitzvah project!
