We're all in this together.

Jaime Biton's Campaign

Join me in raising funds and awareness for United Hatzalah of Israel. I am doing this in honor of My Bar Mitzvah .

Message to sponsors:


Dear Friends and family,

After a great summer at Camp Judaea, my family and I set off for Israel. Friends and family joined me on August 7th at the Kotel as they helped me put on Tefillim for the first time. It was a meaningful moment in my life.  The following day we left for a trip around Israel starting with a day on the Kineret and a couple of nights in the Golan Heights. 

What started as a celebration quickly became a nightmare for my family. On our first night in the Golan my sister became very ill. She would go on to be treated in two hospitals over 16 days. Somehow this terrible situation was wrapped in blessings and miracles. Over the next few weeks my family was helped by wonderful people - friends and strangers, Jews and non-Jews, and many in between. My sister received amazing medical care, prayers, delicious food, and my parents built new friendships. 

In honor of the incredible people who helped save my sister Sofia with gratitude to Hashem for Sofia's healing, in lieu of gifts, I would like to raise money to help others in their time of need. With this in mind I have started a Bar Mitzah project to fundraise for Hatzalah.

Please help me reach my goal so that together we can donate a much needed ambulance to be used in Northern Israel to help save lives. Every donation counts and helps us get closer to our goal. More information can be found at:

Thank you for donating.
