Our Mission

Be Mitzvah provides  a unique one-year intensive Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience that reimagines the traditional model of this important coming-of-age, life cycle moment. Although Hebrew and prayer are integrated into the curriculum, Be Mitzvah shifts the focus to 3 pillars of learning: Mitzvot (behaviors/actions), Middot (character values), and Tzedek (social justice work). Upon completion of their year, participants gain a deeper connection to their Jewish identity and feel inspired to build a life of compassion, love and tikkun olam, healing of the world around them.
