In honor of her Bat Mitzvah, Sadie Toczek of Los Angles is working hard to raise funds for childen at risk in Israel and awareness of Afikim’s work in this field.

Sadie has chosen to twin with a young girl in Israel, an Afikim participant, who will also have her bat mitzvah this summer. The two will celebrate together, in Jerusalem, when Sadie and her family visit this summer.

As part of her campaign for Afikim, Sadie ran a pre-Passover car wash and, with her friends, raised nearly $1400!!! All proceeds will go to support the Afikim B’Kef summer day camps for children at risk in Israel. During the event, the children offered both internal/external cleaning and full service cleanings to neighbors, friends and passersby. The children (and staff) had a blast working hard, getting wet and, of course, doing a mitzvah.
