For Bar/Bat Mitzvah: Putting Tikkun Olam Into Action

Being a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a special time. It’s a time to embrace Tikkun Olam, and make a difference in the world. And it’s a time to choose a meaningful and enjoyable Mitzvah Project.

As a premier human care service agency in San Diego, we’re a natural fit. We can tailor any of our volunteer opportunities to meet the interests and passions of teens, while accommodating busy schedules and small windows of time.

Here are just a few of the projects we can do together:

  • Conducting a drive for personal hygiene items, backpacks, and school supplies.
  • Leading an arts and crafts project for children at a Hand Up food distribution or at the Children’s Hub at our Safe Parking Program.
  • Conducting a food drive for the Hand Up Food Pantry.
  • Bringing activities to older adults at our Social & Wellness Centers.
  • Contributing to holiday programs through donations or volunteering—Passover Packages, Thanksgiving Packages, Embrace-A-Family.
  • Bring companionship to an isolated individual.
  • And much more!

Helping others is a beautiful feeling and an important Jewish value. Let us help you find the perfect Mitzvah Project, and we’ll ensure it’s both meaningful and rewarding.
