he mitzvah of righteous-
ness can seem like pretty
dry stuff if you are 9 years
old and fidgety. Which is
why Sunday's Tzedakah
Experience at Temple
Beth El in Birmingham
was packed with games
and inventive approaches to help-
ing youngsters feel good about aid-
ing the less fortunate.
The program aimed to teach
children and adults alike about
services available in the commu-
nity to assist the elderly, hungry
and the physically and mentally
handicapped.
More than a dozen congrega-
tions and religious schools took
part in the event, which was co-
sponsored by Beth El, the
Women's Division of the Jewish
Federation of Metropolitan De-
troit, the Agency for Jewish Ed-
ucation, the Jewish Educators'
Council and The Jewish News.
