Harli Strauss-Cohn’s Mitzvah Project

Update 9/1/2015

Thanks to all my friends and family for making my project so successful. It is going so well that I want to raise an additional $1,800, for a total of $7,200.

I have volunteered at different places over the years, in my hometown and in Israel, knowing the importance of giving to and helping those less fortunate than myself. Now, specifically for my bat mitzvah, I have made a personal donation to NACOEJ to become a twin with an Ethiopian-Israeli child who does not have the same opportunities and luxuries that I have. Linor Wobe and I are the same age and have several things in common. We will be trading letters and this Twinning will give Linor’s school books, school supplies, educational trips, and more!

I would love it if you would join me in supporting this wonderful organization which does so much to help Ethiopian Jewish kids and their families in Israel. I want to dedicate the funds raised here to the Limudiah Intensive After-School Education Program. This program serves hundreds of children during the school year, with after school learning focusing on language, math, art, music and more. A nourishing hot meal is also served, so important as many of the children will not have had breakfast, let alone a good meal when they get home. I can only imagine what it would be like to be hungry like that, so I want to do something to help. This program has been proven to help the participating children succeed in school and allow them to have a chance at a bright future.
