Hey everyone! So here’s the story… I am part of this awesome organization called Lev Leytzan. For those of you who do not know, Lev Leytzan is an organization that trains medical clowns to clown for patients suffering with cancer, diseases, and much more.

I began my extensive clown training last year and continue to visit patients at hospitals during weekly clowning rounds. The smile I put on these patients’ faces as ‘Jacob the Clown’ is the reason I clown.

Lev Leytzan will be having their annual Chanukah Israel Mission during which the organization clowns for children with illness in their homes and the hospitals. I would love to have the chance to go on this mission and help spread Lev Leytzan’s mission: To heal with laughter.

When I clown, I break barriers and connect to people in ways that I never knew were possible. I get a rush when I clown here in America at our local hospitals such as south Nassau and Mercy Medical Center. It is so amazing to see a smile on the patient’s face and know that you made that happen. It also feels great to know that you helped someone forget about their illness for a few moments. And to have the chance to do that in Israel for my brothers and sisters in Israel would be an even better feeling!!

With this insight into my clowning and into Lev Leytzan’s mission, I wanted to know if you could please help me reach my goal of $2,300. Any support would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to raise enough money to get to Israel and make this dream of clowning in the Holy Land for my brothers and sisters a reality.

Thank you for your support,

Jacob Goldsmith
