Celebrate - New Season
Helping Others Have Fun

Danielle Cohen of Jericho, NY, organized a Mitzvah Project that was inspired by her own love of tennis. Danielle collected used tennis racquets and donated them to Project Morry, also known as Morry’s Camp.

“I decided to take on this particular ‘Mitzvah Project’ so I could give back to children who are less fortunate than me,” Danielle explains. “I’m a tennis player and wanted to give other children the chance to play at camp.”

Danielle chose Project Morry as the beneficiary of her Mitzvah Project. Project Morry is a sleep-away camp in White Plains, NY, that was established by Morry Stein. Stein was the owner and director of Camp Echo Lake who died in a plane crash in October 1994. His goal was to give every American child, no matter what his or her economic status, the gift of summer camp.Project Morry is a year-round youth development organization that provides to each child a multi-year commitment anchored by a superb residential summer camp experience.

Danielle recognizes that “good fortune has come to me via my Bat Mitzvah.” She goes on to say, “I wanted to give back and help others during this very special time of entering Jewish adulthood.” Danielle also says she wanted to do this particular project because she wanted the tennis racquets to be used to have fun. We are sure Morry would be proud!
