Benjamin Salmons

Benjamin Salmons Tzedakah Fund

I realize that I am more fortunate than many others, both in Toronto and around the world, and I feel that it is very important to help others. The project that I will be funding, Gabriel Project Mumbai, not only helps with the immediate needs of the children of the slums and their families, but it also provides a means for them to improve their lives on a long-term basis.

Jonah Aaron

Jonah Aaron Tzedakah Fund

As I reach the age of Mitzvah, I now have the responsibility of stepping up to make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. I have seen first hand, the impact of the funds set up by my sister and brother. I look forward to doing my share improving lives both in Toronto and in Israel.

Olivia Asper

Olivia Asper Tzedakah Fund

"I feel that tzedakah and philanthropy is imortant in so many ways but the most importand in my heart is that because we are so lucky to have an education, food and basic needs looked after that much of the world doesn't get to have. So it is important that we give to those who are not as lucky. In addition I think giving back will help me grow and become a better person as I become an adult."

"I love helping others, especially other children. I do not like to hear about anyone's suffering. If I can make a difference, I will do whatever it takes. I understand through Bnai Tzedek that I can have the best of both worlds -by encouraging both giving and receiving gifts. I also know that giving tzedakah creates a lasting gift, long after my bat mitzvah party has ended, I continue to make a difference."


Samara Bell

"I learned a lot about tzedakah from my parents and

Zev Bell

Zev Bell Tzedakah Fund

I want to give back to the community because I understand that there are people less fortunate than me and I want to give them the opportunity to do extra curricular activities just like me. Everyone should have an opportunity to do something they enjoy. It is my role as a Jew in the community to give back and help in the process of Tikkun Olam, the fixing of the world.

Talia Bell

"I want people to enjoy the sport that I love; soccer. The children who love soccer in Bat Yam cannot afford to play extra-curricular activities. Because of my fund, they will now be able to do what they love while at the same time developing new skills, and self esteem."


Josh Benattar

Josh Benattar Tzedakah Fund

It's important to give back, especially to kids who are not as fortunate as I am. All kids should be able to play sports in a safe and nice environment. I love watching and playing lots of sports such as basketball and I want to help others kids do the same. It feels good doing something for others.

She worked with the Global Task Force on Expanded Access to Cancer Care and Control in Developing Countries with Harvard, while studying at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in the UK. On July 26th, 2015, we will be participating in a Spin-a-thon to raise money in Amanda's honour. Please help us raise money in Amanda's memory to help her dream of helping others stay alive.

I am so happy that my tikkun Olam is connected to dance. My Bat Mitzvah project will help send children in need to dance school and I hope that this will bring them as much happiness and joy as it brings to me. I am so excited to take part in tzeddakah and chesed for my Bat Mitzvah year and can't wait to continue as I become an adult.

Bloom and Klein Family

Bloom and Klein Family Tzedakah Fund

"This fund is for a group of 10 young cousins. The purpose of this fund is that on special occasions such as birthdays and chanukah, the cousins will raise money for tzedakah instead of receiving presents. The 10 young cousins realize how lucky they are and want to bring happiness to the lives of others who are not as lucky as them. It is important to teach children the value of chesed and tzedakah at a young age and we think that this fund provides the counsins the ability to choose which charities they want to support."

There are so many Jewish children in Israel and around the world less fortunate than me. As I approach my Bar Mitzvah I would like to share my blessings with others by marking the occassion with an act of Tzedakah.



Ja David

Jake David Tzedakah Fund

I am giving some of my barmitzvah money to the Ethiopian Jews in Israel to help them get a proper education.  Bat Yam is home to the fastest growing Ethiopian-Israeli community in Israel and is also the most vulnerable with many families living below the poverty line.  More than 50% of Ethiopian immigrants are illiterate and 1 out of four Ethiopian teens in Israel drop out of school.

I feel very blessed with such an amazing family, good education, and that I'm healthy.  Not everyone is as fortunate.

Tikkun olam is a very important part of my transition into being a Jewish man.

Ben Davidson

Hannah Davis

"B'nai Tzedek has helped me to try and make a difference in the world through allowing me to be like many charitable adults and give annual gifts to charities of significance to me. The B'nai Tzedek program helped me start my Jewish adult life in a charitable fashion, and has inspired me to continue to give Tzedakah. I hope that through my fund at B'nai Tzedek I can continue to help those less fortunate than I and make a difference in the world"

Lee Davis

Lee Davis Tzedakah Fund

I know that it is important to give tzedakah throughout my life and by setting this fund up now, I will always have something to give and a way to help those less fortunate than me. My B'nai Tzedek fund is an important first step to enable me make a difference and to give to others for my entire life."

I am excited that I have begun to do my part toward tikkun olam and that my project, which I hope will bring help to those who are struggling and are less fortunate, is a real act of chesed and tzedakah. I hope that it is the first of many that I will be able to do as I become a young woman and as a member of the Jewish community.

Jacob Eisen

"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give to teens who love music as much as I do. My family has taught me the importance of tzedakah and tikkun olam and with the support of my friends and family hope to contribute to the music program in Bat Yam. My donations will go to the cost of music instruments and lessons for Bat Yam's kids. Thank you to all who help!"

Judah Eisen

This tzedekah project is important to me because I love camp so much. It is the place where I am free and have made my closest friends. I feel badly for any kid who can't afford to go to camp. I feel that it is important for every kid to have a fun camp experience.

David Friedland

David Friedland Tzedakah Fund

"I realize how lucky I am to grow up in a family that is fortunate to have all the necessities and more in life. From my first allowance as a young boy to now, my parents have reminded me of the importance of donating to those less fortunate. Each allowance, we would donate a percentage to our tzedakah box. At the time, I was not really aware of what I was doing, but as I got older, I started to understand how even a small act is important. Now, as I become a Bar Mitzvah, I feel like I am truly old enough to make a difference on my own, and that is why I have opened a B'nai Tzedek Fund."

Elliott Friedland

Elliott Friedland Tzedakah Fund

Ever since I was young, I realized that not everyone was as lucky as me. As I have grown older and traveled with my family, I have recognized this even more. As part of my duty, to the Jewish community, I feel that I should give to others that are less fortunate. For this reason, I created a B’nai Tzedek Fund, which will allow me to allocate money to different charitable organizations around the world each year. Through this fund, we can help repair the world.

Michael Friedland

Michael Friedland Tzedakah Fund

"Ever since I was born, my parents have taught me that it is important to give back to the community. As I became older, I started to understand more about why this is so important. My family and I are so lucky that we don't need anything, but many others around the world are not as fortunate as we are. Tzedakah is now part of my life and I felt that it was just the right time to open a B'nai Tzedek Fund, as I become a Bar Mitzvah. This will allow me to donate the earnings from my fund each year to different charities in Canada and around the world."

Fara Glazerman

Fara Glazerman Tzedakah Fund

"Creating my own charity has really shown me the importance of tzedaka and tikun olam. Participating in either matter so much, as we become adults.

“I originally became involved in B'nai Tzedek because my parents, who have always been highly involved in the Toronto Jewish Community, encouraged me to. However, I quickly realized for myself how important it is to donate and volunteer my time. On a trip to Israel, I was able to witness first hand the effects of my donations. As different events have affected my life, I've had numerous opportunities to do things in support of related causes. This includes supporting Holocaust survivors, elderly people in Toronto, those affected by Alzheimer's disease, sending underprivileged children to summer camp, and support a Mentally Disabled School in Israel. B'nai Tzedek is a wonderful opportunity to make a real difference in other's lives, and truly make one feel better about themselves and what they can do.”

I want to help children who are not as fortunate as me. My bar mitzvah is a good time to focus on tikkum olam.

"As you probably know, I'm a huge sports fan. I like to watch lots of different sports, especially football (Go Steelers!), and I really love playing basketball. I'd like to help give kids in Bat Yam, Israel, a chance to enjoy shooting hoops like me. Bat Yam has a large population of underpriviledged children, many of them Ethiopian Jews, who gain so much from playing basketball. For my Bar Mitzvah, instead of giving me a gift,  I hope you'll consider making a donation in my honour to the Gabriel Yallen Basketball Court in Bat Yam."
