Dalia Haber, mother of Barmitzvah Boy
" We wanted to make Matty's Barmitzvah experience as meaningful as possible. With the support of Myisrael, Matty chose to do a triathlon to help Itay, a child the same age who was about to have a very different Barmitzvah experience. Through training hard and telling friends and family why he was doing it, Matty raised a lot more money than he thought possible and really gave Itay something life-changing."
It was amazing to receive so much support from my friends and family who were so generous."
At Myisrael we understand what an important moment it is when a boy or girl celebrates his or her Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
We know too, that this is a time for thinking of others less fortunate and that many Bar/Bat Mitzvah boys and girls want to do something special to help others.
At Myisrael, we want to encourage every Bar/Bat Mitzvah boy/girl to get involved in any way they can, choosing a charity that is meaningful to them.
For example, you could choose to donate some of your gift money to a charity of your choice, you could bring your family to visit one of our projects in Israel or you could set up a fundraising page - challenge yourself and ask people to sponsor you.
