My name is Julie and my bat mitzvah was on November 7, 2009. I wanted to donate some of my bat mitzvah money to your fund because I really admire what you do. I hope this helps!!
That was the note that came in today’s mail along with a very generous check which Julie and her family decided should be used to provide books and other materials for the kids at Beit Hayeled in Israel. Julie is a great lover of books and reading and, in addition to donating books to several places near her home, wanted to help kids in Israel, as well. Yitz Feigenbaum at the group home tells us this will provide a lot of new and interesting resources to the kids living there.
We couldn’t be happier about making the connection, thus allowing Julie to share her interest in books with kids who might otherwise not have this opportunity!
