Bat/Bar Mitzvah Celebrations

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 a young adult. Include Sharsheret in your celebration and choose 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! 

Read below for some creative ways to include Sharsheret in your special celebration.
