Aleh – Bar Mitzvah Twinning

About the Charity

ALEH is Israel’s largest organisation caring for people with disabilities. It is changing the lives of over 700 Israeli children and young people with severe physical and cognitive disabilities, and gives hope to the children and their families. ALEH provides state-of-the-art medical, educational and rehabilitative care, and offers a framework for life – from infancy through adulthood. As a result of ALEH’s work the children are developing far beyond the boundaries of their initial prognoses, and are able to live full lives: attend school; participate in vocational training programs; enjoy swimming at the beach and tour the countryside. ALEH offers a wide range of services and community engagement schemes around the world, so everyone can get involved and make a difference!

Bnei-Mitzvah Twinning

 Take your Bar/Bat Mitzvah to the next level and make it an unforgettable experience for everyone, including yourself!

Like you, ALEH’s children are also excited about their upcoming Bar and Bat Mitzvah, and they hope to have a special celebration just like other kids their age. Each year ALEH holds special celebrations for children who otherwise would not have a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. With your help, we can make it a day to remember!

Twinning means that in honour of your special day, you pair with an ALEH Bar or Bat Mitzvah child, and help them enjoy their big day. You can do it by visiting Israel and celebrating together with your ‘twin’, or by helping sponsor their celebration from overseas. You can even meet with your ‘twin’ at the Kotel on the day of your Bar/Bat Mitzvah. You could ask family and friends to donate to your ‘twin’ in lieu of a regular Bar/Bat Mitzvah gift. You can also sharpen your entrepreneurial skills, and initiate your own social action and fundraising campaign, to give your twin a gift which will help them further develop their abilities. This may be a new piece of medical equipment or a new therapy.

The best thing is that it doesn’t have to end there – you are invited to keep in touch with your twin, and share future exciting celebrations and personal milestones.
