Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah means becoming the son or daughter of commandment (mitzvah) and it is said that there is no higher mitzvah than tzedakah - translated as "sacred giving" from the Hebrew root for 'justice'. Tzedakah is an obligation to give goods or money to those in need as part of the Jewish people's covenant with God to make the world a more 'just' place. Peace of Mind is an organization dedicated to assisting veterans of the Israel Defense Forces in their journey towards healing the emotional and/or psychological wounds that they incurred as a result of their combat experiences. By donating a portion of your monetary gifts to these brave young men, you are fulfilling the mitzvah of tzedakah and ensuring that our Israeli heroes receive the peace of mind that they so rightly deserve.
Together we will keep those who have defended Israel, strong
