Global Mitzvah Projects

Celebrate your milestone by making a gift with meaning.

With your Bar/Bat Mitzvah comes the responsibility and excitement of being recognized as an adult in the community. You can start your adult life with tzedakah (charity), beginning a wonderful life-long commitment to tikkun olam (repairing the world) and making the world a better place.

How It Works

1. Contact us to express interest in doing a Mitzvah Project. We will help you choose a worthy beneficiary and set up a campaign page on our website.

2. Pledge to donate some (or all!) of your Bar/Bat Mitzvah gifts to your campaign.

3. Invite family members, friends, and community members to donate to your campaign in honor of your simcha.

Eli M.

Raised over $1,200 for Abayudaya community projects

Jake S.

Raised money for Abayudaya community projects

"I think the best bar and bat mitzvah celebrations include a mitzvah project, celebrating coming of age through acts of giving. That’s why for my mitzvah project, I am contributing to a Jewish, Christian and Muslim community in Uganda so they can develop their village in peace."

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
