Mitzvah Projects

Since the B’nei Mitzvah Service is the beginning of a child’s acceptance of adult responsibilities in Judaism, it is appropriate for our students to begin fulfilling some of the responsibilities of adulthood. Designing and participating in mitzvah project is a great way for the B’nei Mitzvah student to help contribute to tikkun olam – repairing the world through acts of goodness and loving kindness.
