The Mitzvah Project is a popular Jewish custom where a Bar/Bat Mitzvah chooses a meaningful Mitzvah (which means good deed) to celebrate their Jewish coming of age. It is a unique opportunity for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah to contribute to others, learn about the importance of the Mitzvah and create a fulfilling experience they’ll never forget.
