Bar/Bat Mitzvah Projects
It’s a Mitzvah!
Counting down the days until Camp starts again begins the moment that the summer ends. As many of our Bar and Bat Mitzvah age campers know, it’s a gift to be able to spend nearly eight weeks with their friends at Ramah each summer. Connecting Camp, where they have matured Jewishly, to their Bar or Bat Mitzvah, where they become Jewish adults, makes sense and is a natural conduit for a mitzvah project related to this milestone in their lives.
Nicole A. has incorporated a scholarship mitzvah project into her Bat Mitzvah, adding a special note in her invitation,
I realize that not everyone is as fortunate as I am, so I want to raise enough money for a child to be able to go to Camp Ramah in the Poconos this summer.
My goal is to raise $1,800, and I will match the amounts contributed up to $1,800 using gifts received for my Bat Mitzvah. To contribute to my mitzvah project, please go to the donation page. “Nicole’s Bat Mitzvah Project” will be a choice in the fund drop down menu.
Thank you for your contribution and your help to give a child a life changing Ramah experience.
