Why are Legos on our Second Seder Plate?

These Legos represent the creative innocence of childhood stolen from as many as 30,000 boys and girls in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) who have been abducted to become soldiers.

Through your support, and with our brave partners in the DRC, Jewish World Watch has been securing the release of these boys and girls through risky negotiations with armed groups. Once the children are freed, each receives psychosocial assistance and help to reunite with family. Those without family get continued care, including education and vocational training.

FACT: Conscripting children under the age of 18 for armed conflict is prohibited by international law.
