Bar Bat Mitzvah Party Theme Ideas Where Your Child is the Theme

Mitzvah Projects

Base your project on a Biblical character who shares your Hebrew name. For instance, if your English name is Abby and your Hebrew name is Avigail, think about David's wife, Avigail, who was a skilled diplomat. Perhaps coordinating your mitzvah project with one run by the UN would fit. If your Hebrew name is Rachel, you could have a project focused on compassion, as Rachel was said to have cried that her people would be in exile. If your Hebrew name is David, think of a project related to bravery or wisdom.
