EYTAM'S BAR MITZVAH PROJECT
Hi! My name is Eytam and I live in Nes Harim, Israel. I love nature, reading, art and adventures, and above all, I love all animals.
When I learn about animals suffering, it hurts that I cannot do more to help them. So I have decided to dedicate my bar mitzvah tzedakah project to raising money for helping animals in danger throughout Israel..
Animals are very therapeutic and help people feel better, so I am also excited to be collecting money to support animal therapy care especially with bunnies. This is one great way I am trying to heal hearts of animals and people through my mitzvot.
DID YOU KNOW that an entire code of laws called צער בעלי חיים - tsa'ar ba'alei hayim - the requirement “to prevent the suffering of living creatures”) mandates that animals be treated with compassion? Jews are not even allowed to “pass by” an animal in distress or animals being mistreated, even on the Sabbath.
