Bar Mitzvah Present: Recently, a family in South Africa was affected by the murder of the father. The son is approaching his Bar Mitzvah. A number of Shira members are related to the family, and we thought it would be nice to collect money for a present for the Bar Mitzvah boy. Note: the money collected will go towards buying the child a present, not to charity. If you would like to donate, you can do so here. We will be collecting for one week only.
