Bar Mitzvah Boy
Gives To Needy

LESLEY PEARL

INCORPORATED

Syme

dam Schwartz did
more with his bar
mitzvah money than
stash it in the bank for a
future car or college edu-
cation. After totaling the
gifts from his May celebra-
tion at Congregation Beth
Shalom, Adam gave 10 per-
cent of it away.
Yad Ezra was the for-
tunate recipient.
Sylvia Abramowitz of Yad
Ezra said children have
made donations before, but
never such a large amount.
"It's really exciting when
the kids get involved," Ms.
Abramowitz said, "especial-
ly because a lot of kids don't
realize others don't have the
same comforts of life."
Adam's gift will go toward
buying food for the kosher

pantry. His reason for mak-
ing the donation is two-fold.
Adam's parents requested
both he and his older sister
give some of their bar and
bat mitzvah to a worthy
cause — they did not specify
the amount.
The 13-year-old Hillel Day
School student chose Yad
Ezra because he wanted to
help the Jewish community.
"I got my money from a Jew-
ish event," he said, and he
views feeding people as
essential.
Adam determined the
amount of his donation by
citing Jewish law which
states an individual should
give one-tenth of his or her
income to charity.
"If you have a lot of money
and a nice house, you should
try to help others."
In the future, Adam would
like to give money to Israel
and the Humane Society. 0
