Your Bar or Bat Mitzvah can change the world.

A Bar/Bat Mitzvah is such an important time in a young Jewish person’s life. A special way to make this occasion even more meaningful is with JDC’s (The Joint) My Mitzvah Project. We work with teens to raise money for a cause they’re passionate about and give them the opportunity to make a difference on a global scale.

It only takes a few minutes to create a fundraising page. Click the button below to get started.
