tumblr_inline_o826pu0wSl1t1poz8_400We are thrilled to host the first Bar Mitzvah In recent history for Zach Fisher! If you will be at camp for second session, read this blog post ALL about the exciting weekend and learn more about Zach’s Mitzvah Projects.

I am so excited to be the first camper to celebrate my Bar Mitzvah at Perlman! It’s going to be an awesome weekend, and I hope everyone will have a blast. I will be helping run Friday night services, as well as Saturday morning services. The highlight— Ben & Jerry’s catering ice cream sundaes for everyone on Saturday night while a DJ and dancers lead the party in Sobel Hall. But more importantly, I should tell you about my mitzvah project because I need everyone’s help to make it a success.  I’ve teamed up with the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital and their Pediatric Oncology Unit.  I’m hoping to fill an entire closet with new hats for kids who have lost their hair during chemotherapy .I’m asking everyone to bring at least one new baseball hat to camp this summer (first or second session) so we can donate them to these kids and their families. Any team hat, any color, any size.  I picked this mitzvah project because my mom lost her hair when she had Cancer, and I hated it.  I can’t imagine how hard it is to go through Cancer as a child or teenager, and maybe this small act of Tikkun Olam will help.

If you’d like to help in another way, I’ve also started a fundraising page for B’nai B’rith Perlman Camp to help them raise money for kids who need scholarship- here is the link! https://www.crowdrise.com/zacharys-camp-scholarship-drive/fundraiser/stefaniefisher1
