I am happy that my parents have set up a fund in honor of my Bat Mitzvah at the Tidewater Jewish Foundation. This is something that I will have the rest of my life. Each year I will look forward to deciding which organizations or agencies I would like to contribute to. I feel lucky, at such a young age, to be able to help others in need. My parents have taught me the importance of tzedakah, and I look forward to carrying on this tradition.
