Dear ,

I recently read an article which said that each mitzvah student should choose a mitzvah project they personally connect to. If they choose to support an organization, they should truly understand its’ mission; and it should be a place which they would like to continue supporting in the future.

I want to hear your thoughts and opinions on the subject: Are you feeling pressured to do a particular type of project, or to work with an organization of another’s choosing? What does doing a mitzvah project mean to you?

There are no right or wrong answers, I just look forward to hearing what you think!

 Lag B'Omer Sunday fun-day

shutterstock_127904321.jpgThis celebratory day in the Jewish calendar (when the semi-mourning practices of the omer period, held since Passover, are lifted) falls on Sunday, April 28th this year.

Host a special Lag B’Omer carnival day in your community with games and raffles; admission fees to benefit charity. Ask if people would provide their services at a discount rate (food, booths, games, decorations, raffle items, etc.) since it’s for charity. Invitations can be sent for free online. Perhaps a local Jewish paper or synagogue bulletins could even write a press release about your event to help spread the word!

Mitzvah Project: Making bracelets for the girls at the Children's Home in Netanya.

Tell us a little about yourself: I am very much into fashion! I have 4 siblings, but I am the oldest. I also love ice skating, basketball, and reading.

DSCN0580.JPGHow did you decide to take on this particular project for Lev LaLev? I went on the internet with my mom and we found Lev LaLev using google!

What was the most meaningful part of doing this Mitzvah Project for your Bat Mitzvah? It was when I saw how much money my family and friends gave to help the girls in Israel!

DSCN0568.JPGPlease share any details or fond memories of your Mitzvah Project and Bat Mitzvah. Everybody enjoyed making the bracelets. It was so much fun!

What are your plans for the future, i.e. life after Bat Mitzvah? To become a true bat mitzvah!

Please share your advice for a girl looking into doing a Mitzvah Project for her Bat Mitzvah. Lev LaLev is amazing, and it is so meaningful to have shared my bat mitzvah with these girls from Israel!

April survival tip: Don't underestimate yourself

This was my answer to the question: “What would you tell your 13 year old self?” which I was asked at a recent bnai mitzvah fair. Working with so many mitzvah girls, now I see just how much you can accomplish if you just let yourself believe that you can do it!
