Mitzvah Projects

Being a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a special time. It’s a time for you to accept your new responsibilities as an adult. It’s a time for you to embrace Tikkun Olam, and make a difference in the world around you. And it’s a time for you 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 your interests and passions.

Here are just a few of the projects we offer:

  • Conducting a drive for personal hygiene items, backpacks, and school supplies.
  • Leading an arts and crafts project for children of military families during a monthly food distribution at Camp Pendleton or Murphy Canyon.
  • Conducting a food drive for the Hand Up Food Pantry.
  • Shopping for used household items for newly arriving refugee families.
  • Bringing Shabbat services for older adults at residential care facilities.
  • Contributing to holiday programs through donations or volunteering—Passover Packages, Thanksgiving Packages, Embrace-A-Family.
  • Creating welcome baskets for newly-arrived refugee families.
  • Ride-a-long on an On the Go Shuttle and assist older adults on their way to Shabbat services.
  • 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.
