There is an excitement in the air in HANC Middle School about doing the amazing mitzvah of wearing tzitzis. HANC eighth grader Avishai Newman founded and launched The Tzitzis Project at the Uniondale campus. The aim of the project is to create a positive feeling about doing the day-to-day mitzvah of wearing a four-cornered garment with tzitzis.

Avishai has created a website and “merch” for all middle schoolers to take pride in their mitzvah observance. He plans to move this project to a global scale! We are so proud of our young entrepreneur, who has channeled his creative energies in a meaningful way to feel good about doing mitzvos.
