Millwood, NY (PRWEB) May 12, 2008
The new Jewish charity I've Done My Part, Inc. has started a service to send a free prayer/message to the Wailing (Western) Wall. Although I've Done My Part, Inc. targets Jewish parents throwing a Bar/Bat Mitzvah party, this service is open to all.
A Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a special event in a Jewish family's life. I've Done My Part, Inc., will submit prayers and well wishes in honor of the special day and have them placed into the Wailing (Western) Wall, in Jerusalem, Israel. Notes placed into the Wailing (Western) Wall are considered sacred and Jews believe praying at the Wailing (Western) Wall signifies being in the presence of God. This service will be provided free of charge. One of I've Done My Part's volunteers will place the prayer/message into the Wailing (Western) Wall as close to the child's Bar/Bat Mitzvah date as possible. Plus, all notes sent electronically will be linked with security code and a video of the actual note being place into the Wailing Wall will be taken and available for viewing on I've Done My Part's web site. To find out more about I've Done My Part, Inc. please visit them at http://www.IveDoneMyPart.org .
It's about keeping the "Mitzvah" in Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
Jewish parents spend about 2-5 billion dollars on Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties per year. This is a tremendous pool of potential donations. If a small portion of these dollars were re-allocated to Jewish charities it would have a profound impact on Jewish organizations throughout the world. This spirit of giving is asked of Bar/Bat Mitzvah children and often required in order to have a Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
