EVENT DATE: Jul 21, 2012
I am heading to Israel to celebrate my Bar-Mitzvah with my family on July 21st in Jerusalem. As a part of my Mitzvah project, I am helping to raise money to purchase supplies for Israeli soldiers through an organization called " A Package From Home"
Their mission is " to strengthen the spirit and resolve of each Israeli soldier, and to show our appreciation for the sacrifices they are making in securing our safety and the survival of the Israeli People. Our care packages are not only a warm reminder of the love and esteem we hold for our soldiers but also are items that they truly need.We send tens of thousands of packages to Combat Chayalim Bodedim (soldiers without family in Israel) and severely wounded soldiers who are receiving long term hospital care.
