Benjamin Sternklar Davis, a student at the Heschel School in Manhattan, gave $40,000 in bar mitzvah gift funds to the city of Sderot in Israel to fund a childrenâ€˜s park. The Mayor of Sderot, David Buskila, said the Sternklar Davis can be the first kid to use the park when it is completed.
A pretty good idea. Start these emerging philanthropists young. Give kids money and then let them decide how to allocate it. Now that he is 13, I guess he can join the Jewish Teen Funders Network.
