5 Steps to The Perfect Mitzvah Project for Your Bar/Bat Mitzvah Child
Your child is approaching Bar/Bat Mitzvah age and celebrations are in order! In addition to party planning and learning religious ritual, many synagogues require students to complete volunteer service in the form of a Mitzvah Project. Connecting this activity to your child’s interests can turn the Mitzvah Project into one of the most meaningful and fulfilling aspects of the process!
Here are some helpful steps for finding the perfect Mitzvah Project that will commemorate his or her transition into adulthood and engage your child’s passions too.
Brainstorm: Sit down with your child to see what it is this project means to him/her. With this maturing age, you can ask questions like “What are you passionate about?” and “How do you think you can make a difference?” Think about the different types of community service, including volunteer work, fundraising, and/or organizing a charitable drive or initiative. Finding something that sparks an interest will inspire them to get involved.
