Yonina and her mother Aliza Weinberg have been collecting used eyeglasses for a special Bat Mitzvah project with RE-SPECS. Recently, they arrived in Israel from the US with a suitcase filled with recycled glasses already sorted and ready to go! For her special Bat Mitzvah event, which included a welcome tour of the RE-SPECS facility, glass artist Eli Alfi conducted a unique workshop, turning the recycled lenses into beautiful art pieces. Yonina and other vivacious youngsters took part in the program, producing creative and original craft pieces, such as candlesticks and napkin holders!
