The Story

EVENT DATE: Feb 24, 2017

EVENT DETAILS: 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Bender JCC of Greater Washington in Rockville, MD
This project is benefiting Friends of the Israel Defense Forces MidAtlantic Region

 

My name is Cole Friedlander and I am excited to be having my Bar Mitzvah in Israel this summer. For my Bar Mitzvah project, I wanted to support Israel in a way that was meaningful to me so I chose to help the thousands of young men and women of the Israeli Defense Force who risk their lives daily to ensure the safety of Israel. Specifically, I am working with the Friends of the IDF to build an active/leisure space for the Kfir Brigade in the North. Soldiers can socialize, read, share a meal or just hang out in this new, fun area. I plan to visit the Kfir Brigade when I am there in June and see this great new space.
 

I need to raise $10,000 to accomplish my project! To reach this goal, I am hosting a 3x3 Basketball Tournament – Hoops for Heroes – on Friday, February 24th, 2017 from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the JCC in Rockville, MD. Registration fee is $25 per player. Teams can be 3-5 players. Form your own team or be added to a team. The Winning Team will receive $50 gift cards to Dick’s Sporting Goods. To sign up to be a player, click the REGISTRATION FOR PLAYERS button above.


If basketball is not your thing, you can help me reach my goal by clicking the DONATE button above. Any contribution would mean a lot and help the Israeli soldiers have a better quality of life as they protect the people of Israel.
