My Mitzvah Project
Whether you are 12 or 80, male or female, Hadassah brings greater joy and purpose to your affirmation of your commitment to Judaism. In lieu of receiving personal presents, it has become the custom to place emphasis on community and charity. This is exactly what Hadassah offers you. With your own web page, you can spread the mitzvah of charity with your family and friends.
Like Basketball? Set up a Free Shot Contest. Ask friends and family to sponsor you and your friends with a dollar amount for every free shot that is made within a certain time period.
Play Music? Have a "Battle of the Bands" Bash! Invite your friends to participate. Sell tickets to friends and family.
Listen to Music? Many people have CD's they no longer listen to. Collect CD's from friends, family and neighbors and have a sale! Pass out flyers and send emails to publicize! (This can work with DVD's of movies, too!)
Budding Chef? Organize a Bake Sale with your friends! Put out flyers in your neighborhood, email the date, time and place to everyone you know and ask them to do the same!
Enjoy Crafts? Make beautiful beaded bracelets or other jewelry pieces to sell to friends and family. A beautiful way to help an important cause!
Create a partnership with a local ice cream or bake shop. Ask them to create a special flavor for you and that the profits from that flavor will go to your mitzvah project. Ask everyone you know to take everyone they know and buy the flavor. The shop will benefit from new people coming in and you and your friends will benefit Hadassah!
Into fitness? Ask friends and family to sponsor you for every sit up, push up, or rope jump you do in a given period of time. Or organize a walk or bikeathon where your participants ask people to sponsor them for a given amount for each mile they walk or ride.
Planning to have it in Israel?
If you’re planning a bar/bat mitzvah in Israel, Hadassah offers some over-the-top locations. Abbell Synagogue at Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem has 12 world-famous magnificent stained glass windows by artist Marc Chagall. No place could be more beautiful, or more spiritual. If you want an outdoor setting, our three Youth Aliyah villages, located throughout Israel, are beautiful and green.
Hadassah Medical Organization, Hadassah College Jerusalem, Youth Aliyah/Children-at-Risk, Young Judaea, and Jewish National Fund are the places where we touch lives, where we do our work, and where you can make a real difference.
