My Bar/Bat Mitzvah Project of Brooklyn


My Mitzvah Project
Sheila Katz, Chair

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.

Choosing a Mitzvah Project for Your Bar/Bat Mitzvah
When fundraising for your Bar/Bat Mitzvah Projects, make sure to let everyone know what your fundraiser is for! Direct them to your "myMitzvah Project" page and tell them about Hadassah and why you feel it is important to help!

Use email and Social Media sites like Facebook and Twitter (only with your parents' permission!) to get the word out about your fundraiser.

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.

Our Projects

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.

Medicine & Health
Medicine &Health is a theme that runs through all of our projects. We have set the standard of medical care in Israel and throughout the Middle East. Hadassah’s goal is simple: to help anyone in need regardless of race, religion or nationality. Healing is at the core of all of Hadassah’s work, and it can be a bridge to peace.


Learning is the highest achievement. Each of Hadassah’s projects offers the gift of knowledge, gives hope and independence and creates new opportunities. Hadassah understands that a young generation raised with a strong education is best equipped to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Children & the Future
The highest priority is given to the welfare of children in all of our projects. While the organization’s commitment to the young was first made in Israel, today, through Young Judaea, we meet the needs of America’s Jewish youth as well.



The Environment
The land of Israel has always had a special meaning. Care of the environment and ecological concerns are apparent in all of our projects.
