The Birthday Party Give Back Program


We are very excited about our new partnership with ECHOage, an organization that gives kids the opportunity to make a difference by supporting a local charity of their choice. Kids who care about our cause can raise money and awareness on their birthday by asking their friends and family to support Shaare Zedek in lieu of birthday presents.

How it works:

  • All the tools you need to plan and manage an effortless birthday party and teach your children about giving at the same time.
  • Through online invitations, guests contribute funds securely in lieu of birthday gifts.
  • Half of the funds collected go to Shaare Zedek and the other half goes towards the child’s desired birthday gift.
  • Guests will receive tax receipts for their donations.

It is an easy, fun and meaningful way for your child to make a difference on their birthday!

Let us be a part of your child's next birthday party.

The Boomerang Project



You get back what you give back

The Boomerang Project is a wonderful way to learn about “tzedakah” and “tikkun-olam” while making a meaningful impact in support of Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. Have fun while helping to enrich the lives of pediatric patients at the hospital.

How You Can Help

Three Boomerang Options:

1. Wheelchair Basketball Challenge

Shaare Zedek Medical Center’s Wilf Children’s Hospital needs wheelchairs. Wheelchairs are in high demand and they are affordable to purchase. You can help purchase wheelchairs by setting up a personal fundraising page on our secure Boomerang website and raising funds. With every $500 that is raised, you will purchase a wheelchair for the hospital.

Boomerang participants will be invited to play in a special exhibition basketball game with an NBA alumni, win prizes, receive a plaque on the Wheelchair Wall at Shaare Zedek Medical Center and celebrate their fundraising success!

2. Plan your own fundraising event

If basketball isn’t your thing, then consider your own event or fundraising challenge and choose the area of support at Shaare Zedek that is meaningful to you. All you need is a little creativity, some careful planning, and the desire to make a difference.

3. Donate a portion of your Bar/Bat Mitzvah gifts

If fundraising isn’t your thing, you can still support Shaare Zedek by donating a portion of your Bar/Bat Mitzvah gifts and choose your area of support at the hospital. There are wonderful and unique programs in need of support such as the Pediatric Art Therapy Program, Clown Therapy, or Pet Therapy in the Wilf Children’s Hospital.
