Ohr Eliyahu PTA Organizes Hair-Cutting Drive


Ohr Eliyahu PTA Organizes Hair-Cutting Drive

The main mission of the PTA of Yeshiva Aharon Yaakov Ohr Eliyahu is to connect the teachers with parents and students, making Ohr Eliyahu a true family unit. Last year, after many events and activities connecting those three branches, the PTA dreamed bigger. Why not incorporate the community at large?

That is when the collaboration of Ohr Eliyahu and Zichron Menachem was born. Zichron Menachem is an organization in Israel benefiting those with cancer. Following the model of England, Australia, and other states in America, a hair-cutting event was organized through the PTA of YAYOE to benefit those in need of wigs due to illness.

The response was overwhelming and beautiful. This past Thursday evening, June 15, 2017, 22 women and children donated their hair at the second annual hair-cutting event in Los Angeles, California. Participants were pampered in return for their altruism.

A special thank you is owed to all the girls and women who donated their hair to such a worthy cause. The organizers also send a special thank you to the official Corporate Sponsors of this event: Vincent Hair Artistry, Rosie Bowsie, Sarah Chloe, The Event Detail, Events Enchanted, and Elizabeth Salano Photography.
