The Bar Mitzvah of

Sam & Josh

Tikun Olam Bar Mitzvah Album

This album TIKUN OLAM comes straight from our hearts and souls as we celebrate our Bar Mitzvahs. With the spotlight on feeding the hungry, we recognize that there are many ways to “fix the world.”

Through perseverance, friendship, love, optimism, commitment, community, light, home, equality and mutual respect our world moves forward each day. The making of this album has been a long journey. Here we present the songs that move us to connect and to give of ourselves to improve our precious world. We hope that you enjoy these tunes and that they inspire you to do the same.

Our chosen charity is Leket Israel. Leket feeds the needy in Israel on a daily basis by rescuing food that would otherwise go to waste.

OUR GOAL: We hope to raise $45,000 to help Leket Israel lease a 15 ton refrigerated truck for a year.

About Leket Israel: Founded in 2003, Leket Israel rescues and redelivers surplus food that would otherwise be discarded to people in need. Leket Israel, The National Food Bank serves as Israel’s leading food rescue and redistribution network, actively working to alleviate nutritional insecurity in Israel through its many projects. With a task force of volunteers and staff members, over 220 tons of food per week is transferred to 180 nonprofit partners including soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior centers and other social service organizations around Israel; reaching more than 140,000+ needy people on a weekly basis.

Please contribute generously to our cause by donating and downloading this music album.
