Hi! My name is Talya Braverman and I am studying for my Bat Mitzvah. At my synagogue, students studying for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah do a Mitzvah Project. The goal of a Mitzvah Project is to contribute to a worthwhile cause or organization. By doing the project, students are doing a Mitzvah, or a good deed.
For my Mitzvah project, I am writing songs to raise money for The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp was founded by Paul Newman in 1988. It is a place where children with serious illnesses can go to simply be themselves, and have fun. I think it is very important that kids always have the opportunity to express themselves, and be who they want to be.
If you want to listen to some of the songs that I wrote and performed, please click on any of these links, or on the corresponding thumbnails in the introductory video.
