Liron (9) from King David Victory Park in Johannesburg, South Africa sent in a presentation on Tzedakkah.
[quote]I chose to show how people from all cultures and religions can unite the world and change the world by giving tzedakah. It doesn’t matter how little or how much you give, as long as we are responsible for each other and learn to give from ourselves to help other people.[/quote]
He told us about the digital tool he used:
[quote]I decided to put a PowerPoint presentation together because I wanted to explain my mitzvah using a slide show. I used Google images to get pictures and I downloaded the music. I then matched the timing of the music to the slide show.[/quote]
Liron explained how we could launch this Mitzvah as a project in his school:
[quote]I think that a different class should choose a charity every week. On Mondays, the charity should be presented to the school so that the pupils understand the needs of that particular charity. The class in charge can make posters and give talks through the week about their chosen charity. During assembly on the Friday, they can announce how much they raised and the difference it will make to people’s lives. The needs of the charities should change eg; 1 week collect tins, another week clothes, another week we can give our time or have a party for the charity. This will show the pupils that you don’t need money to change people’s lives.[/quote]
