In honor of her bat mitzvah last weekend, Avigayil Leibowitz, daughter of Shamai and Hagit Leibowitz, made jewelry and jewelry boxes and sold them in a yard sale, raising more than $500. The money will be donated to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Sheba Hospital in Tel Aviv where she - and her twin brother Niv - were born and cared for.
