Many young women and men preparing for their Bat or Bar Mitzvah find it meaningful to initiate a Mitzvah project, contributing to the community and helping others as they become adult members of the Jewish community. Include Sharsheret in your celebration and develop a Sharsheret Bat or Bar Mitzvah Project. Send us your name and the date of your celebration, and we’ll be in touch to help you plan your special event!
The following are some creative ways to include Sharsheret in your special celebration:
Plan a Sharsheret Pink Shabbat and Bake Pink Challah
Host a Sharsheret Pink Shabbat® in your synagogue. In the spirit of Shabbat, organize a pink challah baking party for you and your friends. We will provide the recipe! Sell the challah to friends and family and include educational materials to raise awareness.
Organize Pledge Activities
Rally your friends and family to join you in fun activities such as bowl-a-thons, walks or races, and fashion shows. Sharsheret can generate Pledge Forms for your special activity and help you plan your big event.

Send Tribute Cards
Sharsheret offers beautiful Tribute Cards that can be used to thank family members and special guests who have participated in your celebration. Consider purchasing Sharsheret Tribute Cards in lieu of ordinary thank you notes. Click here to order your Tribute Cards
Give Tzedakah (Charity)
Giving Tzedakah, or charity, to others at a time when you are receiving so many special gifts can be very meaningful.
Create And Sell
Use your creative and artistic abilities to create and sell crafts such as jewelry, greeting cards, t-shirts, and hats. The proceeds you earn from your sales can be donated to Sharsheret in honor of your Bat/Bar Mitzvah.
Volunteer Your Time
Set aside hours to volunteer in one of our offices (in Teaneck, New Jersey, Hollywood, Florida or Los Angeles, California) and help our staff coordinate Sharsheret programs and upcoming events.
Babysitting And Tutoring Network
Organize a network of babysitters and tutors to help younger children and families in your neighborhood. Donate a portion of the proceeds raised from your network to Sharsheret.
Coordinate A Glass Ribbon Project
Create fused glass mosaics to adorn beautiful pieces of handcrafted Judaica or Strength Stones, designed by artist Gary Rosenthal to be sold in stores across the country. A portion of every sale is donated to Sharsheret. Visit www.glassribbon.com to learn more.
We welcome your ideas, and encourage you to contact us to develop other creative and meaningful Mitzvah projects.
