Rachel Barrett spent 2 months volunteering her time with the World WIZO Fundraising Department , an experience she will cherish forever. Rachel explains in an article below how the younger generation of leaders in Australia are starting to pave the way forward with their own WIZO mission.
Each boy and girl who lives in Israel enjoys the freedom to be Jewish, to celebrate Festivals and rejoice in our heritage, but not all are able to celebrate their Bar/Bat Mitzvah, their coming of age.
