Making a Bat Mitzvah Meaningful
Madison Wegner and her Mom came to visit today. Madison is a thoughtful young woman about to celebrate her Bat Mitzvah. She and her Mom came to talk a bit about Madison’s mitzvah project. Madison has lots of interests but when I told her about Beit Hayeled and my recent email from Yitz Feigenbaum she was really excited….Among Madison’s many interests are kids, and Beit Hayeled’s focus on providing a safe and loving home for kids removed from their parent(s)’ supervision because of abuse or other negative situations was of particular interest to her and her family. When I mentioned that Beit Hayeled needed about $4000 annually to cover the costs of medications taken by many of the kids (these are costs above and beyond what the government provides) Madison expressed an immediate interest in trying to meet part of that expense and pledged to underwrite the costs of medication for one month. A perfect fit for both Madison and for the kids at Beit Hayeled!
Mazal tov, Madison!
