Hi, my name is Eli and in June I am having my bar mitzvah. As part of the process, I will be doing a mitzvah project through Yashar LaChayal (straight to the soldier).
I hope to raise money for a program called Hoops for Heroes. They help soldiers who put their lives on the line go to basketball games to take a break from the dangers they face.
When I play basketball I forget about the stresses of school and learning my Hebrew stuff. The soldiers probably face more troubles than turning in homework on time, and the money I raise will help them go to basketball games, where they can have their stress relieved.
Thank you so much for your help.
Jennifer Knudsen – Mazal tov to you, Eli, and this mitzvah project of yours and your involvement in it is terrific and inspiring. Thank you for the opportunity to donate in your honor.
