Soccer for Peace would like to wish a huge MAZAL TOV to Matthew on the occasion of his Bar Mitzvah this past January.

Matthew-Lawrenz1 We are so honored that he chose to support Soccer for Peace as his Bar Mitzvah mitzvah project. Thank you Matthew for all your support!

Matthew’s commitment to Soccer for Peace, and mitzvot, can be best expressed in his own words:

Matthew-Lawrenz2“I believe Soccer for Peace is the perfect charity for me to support because it combines a love for Israel with my love of soccer. I have played soccer for as long as I can remember and it brings me so much joy to play the game. I know playing soccer has the ability to lift my mood when I am not feeling great. I cannot imagine being in a war-torn region and living with fear everyday. If soccer can bring a little joy to these children’s lives, that is a great achievement.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Thank you Matthew, and thank you to all of Matthew’s family and friends who so generously donated in his honor. Mazal tov!
