Siegel has spent the past 28 consecutive summers in Israel, beginning with the one he spent touring the country in a unique campaign to find the best ways to distribute the hundreds of "shliach mitzvah" dollars he had received from friends and acquaintances. [A "shliach mitzvah" is a person who is sent as an agent to perform a good deed.] Since then, Siegel has spent his summers in a like manner, as well as teaching Israeli teens about tzedakah and introducing them to many of "Israel's Mitzvah heroes."
The group's other "targets" included Rabbanit Bracha Kapach; the "Chicken Woman," Clara Hammer; Israel National Therapeutic Riding Association-Beit Yannai; Shaare Zedek Hospital, where they distributed toys with the Mitzvah Clowns; Shalva; A Package From Home, where they helped assemble packages for IDF soldiers; Association for the Support of Fiancees of Fallen IDF Soldiers; Bayit Cham (Warm House); Dental Volunteers for Israel; and the Romema Project.
