Hi. My name is Jack Shapiro. I am in seventh grade, and my Bar Mitzvah is on October 22, 2022. For my Bar Mitzvah Project, I am excited to raise money for the Israel Sports Center for the Disabled. Sports have always been an important part of my life. Since I was a little kid, I have always enjoyed playing all kinds of sports, including baseball, basketball, and flag football. When I met with my rabbi to discuss ideas for my mitzvah project, we immediately thought that something related to kids and sports would be a meaningful fit for me. I remembered that the ISCD had come to my school a few years ago, and I learned more about it by watching videos of the athletes and learning about their personal stories. I think it is so incredible how the Center helps kids overcome emotional and physical challenges through playing sports, and really changes their lives. I am so excited to be able to help these kids and athletes even in a small way by raising funds for them as a part of my Bar Mitzvah, and I hope to also raise awareness of this amazing organization. I hope you will consider donating to the Israel Sports Center for the Disabled in honor of my mitzvah project.
