Donating hair as Lag B’Omer mitzvah

Weizmann Primary pupils Rose Miller Gr 4, Adaya Landau Gr 4, Alexandra (Zuzu) Jaffe Gr 3 and Lexi Lockitch Gr 4

Herzlia’s Lag B’Omer event this year was dedicated to Zichron Menachem (supporting children with cancer) as donating one’s hair is a beautiful expression of tzedakah.

The kindness and compassion donors displayed to others going through difficult times is inspiring and embodies the essence of what it means to be a proud Herzlian, mensch and Jew. It was an uplifting and joyous afternoon filled with chesed, menschlichkeit, gratitude, and generosity. Thank you to pupils, staff and parents for donating their hair, time, gifts, expertise or support.
