Seattle Youth's Mitzvah project benefits school in Kiryat Malachi

Harry Michael Simpson, the son of TIPS steering committee member Amy Wasser-Simpson and Chuck Simpson (Z'L) was called to the Torah on September 13, 2008 at his Bar Mitzvah.

In the spirit of tzedakah, he chose to help the Mitzvah Store at the Netzach Yisrael elementary school in Kiryat Malachi. At the school, students get points for good classroom behavior, helping others, prayer, and doing well in schoolwork. Then once a week, they can "spend" their points on many different items in the school mitzvah store, which is run by their peers. Items in the store include games, book bags, jewelry, toy cars, flashlights, and cereal.

If anyone studying for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is interested in a mitzvah project in Kiryat Malachi or Hof Ashkelon, please contact Dina Tanners at or Ira Kerem at who will be glad to tailor a project to the student's interest. (Dina Tanners, Seattle)
