Jules's Bar Mitzvah Project

from Jules regarding his Bar Mitzvah project:

For my Mitzvah Project, I have selected the Israel Guide Dog Center for the Blind, an organization that combines my love of dogs with my desire to help people with special needs, while supporting a project located in Israel. 

Before the center opened, blind Israelis had to travel to Jerusalem to pass an English test. If they did not speak English well enough, they were out of luck. If they did speak English, they had to leave their families for a month and travel to the US where they would train with a dog that was not prepared for the unique conditions in Israel, like traffic circles, security barriers, cars parked on the sidewalks, aggressive drivers and extreme summer temperatures.

Now that the center is open, all visually impaired Israelis have an opportunity to resume a life of independence and mobility through a partnership with a faithful guide dog companion -- that understands Hebrew!

My goal is to sponsor a puppy for the Israel Guide Dog Center for the Blind, that will one day be "Partnered" with visually impaired Israelis. Please help me by contributing to this great cause!!
