Do a Mitzvah for your Bar/Bat Mitzvah! A mitzvah project is a wonderful way to enhance the bar mitzvah experience or bat mitzvah experience. Mitzvah Project initiatives were created in the 1990s to offer Jewish pre-teens a way to give back to their community. As part of the bar/bat mitzvah experience, Rabbi Jason Miller, The Mitzvah Rabbi, will serve as a resource to help your son or daughter choose a meaningful mitzvah project in the lead up to their bar or bat mitzvah. These mitzvah projects can be a hands-on social action project or an initiative to raise needed funds to a cause that is meaningful to them.
Rabbi Jason will help your Jewish child find the mitzvah project opportunity that is best suited for them based on their interests and passions.
A mitzvah project is a meaningful way to engage your child, and potentially, your whole family in some of the most important values of Judaism – repairing the world (tikkun olam) and compassion for others (v’ahavta l’rayecha kamocha).
For more information please contact Rabbi Jason Miller, The Mitzvah Rabbi.
