Bima baskets

at my temple we have these baskets put on a step in front of the bima on both sides. Some people put flowers in them, some people put food to donate, some people put toys, and some people even put in dog or cat food and toys. Not many people ever put in books though, especially not braille books, but i am. We went to the national Braille Press website and chose books that i had liked when i was younger or that i know people will like. We chose things like Harry Potter, and Shel Silverstein books. We obviously chose the book that i helped to make, Oh the Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss. After my Bat Mitzvah these books will be donated to Perkins School for the Blind, the school where my cousin Sawyer goes.
