Give a Mitzvah–Do a Mitzvah

The Give a Mitzvah–Do a Mitzvah program enables bar and bat mitzvah students to create their own unique mitzvah project that connects their interests and hobbies to UJA-Federation of New York’s work around the world. Alongside a UJA-Federation mitzvah coordinator, participants brainstorm individual projects and then contribute their time, energy, and a portion (or all) of their gifts to this special mitzvah project.

Mitzvahs & Milestones

Having a wedding, birthday, or anniversary celebration? Share a mitzvah, and you’ll have even more to celebrate. If you or a family member will be celebrating a momentous occasion, we offer you the opportunity to design a philanthropic mitzvah project around your celebration. It’s a great way to extend your personal joy into the lives of those less fortunate.

When you invite your guests, you can ask them to make a donation in lieu of gifts. We’ll help you pick a mitzvah project based on your interests, communicate the mitzvah project to your guests, and make the most positive impact possible.
