Each year, our 7th grade B'Nei Mitzvah class works on mitzvah projects with money donated by the David L. Simon Foundation. This year, they chose United Cerebral Palsy and The Amazon Conservation Team.
United Cerebral Palsy strives to be the indispensable resource for individuals with cerebral palsy and other disabilities, their families, and their communities. UCP local service providers, known as affiliates, provide services and support on a community--by-community basis, serving the unique needs of people in their region. To donate, visit here.
The Amazon Conservation Team partners with indigenous and other local communities to protect tropical forests and strengthen traditional culture. They envision a future where healthy tropical forests and thriving local communities exist in harmonious relationship with each other, contributing to the well-being of the planet.

And a special thank you to our 7th graders who worked hard this year to make these projects possible.
