Doing a mitzvah #DropOff #46
Here's to a special kid, who in the process of becoming a man, brought many smiles to kids at CHOP (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia)!
So what is a Bar Mitzvah?
Bar (בַּר) is a Jewish Babylonian Aramaic word literally meaning "son" (בֵּן), while bat (בַּת) means "daughter" in Hebrew, and mitzvah (מִצְוָה) means "commandment" or "law" (plural: mitzvot). Thus bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah literally translate to "son of commandment" and "daughter of commandment".
A mitzvah project is one way to make sure your bat/bar mitzvah is as unique and special as you are yourself. You’ll choose one mitzvah, become an expert in it, and then present it to your friends and family in a way that only you can. It’s one of the most meaningful things you can do in honor of your bat/bar mitzvah.
Derek reached out to SHEETS FROM HOME a while ago. His mother heard about our cause and introduced it to him when he was looking to make a difference as part of his Bar Mitzvah Project. Derek made a difference. A big difference! Thanks to his efforts and the kindness and generosity of his guests, he was able to deliver 87 (!!!) sheets to the oncology unit at CHOP (PA).
Mazal Tov Derek! We are very proud of you!!
