Izzy's 2018 8th Birthday Campaign

Given that he is in capable of comprehending much, if anything at all, making him a typical birthday party, would be of minimal value. Therefore, for the fifth consecutive year, I intend on transforming Izzy’s birthday, from a day of frivolous celebration, into a meaningful religious event, which will hopefully meritoriously serve upon his behalf, as I continue to fervently beseech the Almighty God, to wrought an unprecedented miracle, and restore the health of my angelic Izzy, who according to all conventional medical wisdom, has been diagnosed with a progressive, degenerative, and irreversible rare genetic disorder (I.e. fatal). Therefore, on AUGUST 30, the date corresponding to his Hebrew birthday, which is based upon the lunar calendar, (Click on Link: https://www.britannica.com/science/lunar-calendar ), I intend to make a religious celebration, celebrating the completion of I finish a tractate of the hallowed Talmud (Click on Link: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talmud ), which I study on a nightly basis.
