Bar & Bat Mitzvah Projects

Many Bar and Bat Mitzvah students at Congregation Beth Emeth undertake a "Mitzvah Project", which is a project to help others in the community, in other parts of the world, or in the synagogue in some significant way. Students are encouraged to choose a project related to their own personal interests and hobbies, or to a need they have seen that is meaningful to them. A selection of current projects are described below. Some projects request assistance or invite participation from friends, family and the congregation, and we hope you will consider taking part.
