Areyvut will have the pleasure to lead a Mitzvah Clown training next Sunday, June 30 for NCSY’s GIVE USA at the Jewish Home at Rockleigh. Through this program we will teach 53 new people the art of Mitzvah Clowning, engage 40 high school students and leaders from across the country and bring joy to more than 150 residents at the Jewish Home.
We appreciate the hospitality of the Jewish Home in hosting the training and in enabling us to visit their residents and are thrilled that GIVE USA will be kicking off their summer with Mitzvah Clowning and will be utilizing the skills they learn and gain throughout the summer and beyond. As I have said before, Mitzvah Clowning is the gift that keeps on giving because once these 53 participants are trained they can continue and can bring this program and the lessons they learn back to their schools, synagogues and communities.
I want to give you an opportunity to play a role in bringing this exciting and unique inter-generational program to fruition.
Areyvut’s direct costs – covering the clown kit, clown outfit and supplies for the site visit- come to $2,108. The GIVE USA participants have started a Root Funding campaign to support their participation in this powerful program. You can contribute at http://www.rootfunding.com/campaign/4028 or if you prefer can give directly on the Areyvut site. All donations are tax deductible and are greatly appreciated.
