Worthy Brother Mario Oves, President of HOD’s North America Governing Lodge, and newly-initiated Brother Mario Karpuj, Lodge Bezalel, were in Jerusalem to present a check for $22,000 at the Zichron Menachem campus in Jerusalem. The money will fund the construction of a hair salon dedicated to helping children with cancer. The salon will provide custom made wigs, along with payot for the religious boys. In the last year alone, they created over 500 custom-made wigs for children and young adults. They style and color the wigs, to create a look as close as possible to their existing hair style.

Future plans include the provision of hair and beauty instruction to young adults and students from overseas who are currently studying in Israel. These lessons will give them an opportunity to learn a concrete skill, as well as a chance to volunteer their time with the young people at the Day Centre.
