Bar/Bat Mitzvah project

Gifted swimmer Abigail Harris decided her Batmitzvah was the perfect opportunity to put her talents to good use

She told us: “I was amazed by how talented they all were, from an eight-year-old violinist from the Ukraine to a group of older teenagers playing jazz, and how MOT was helping them develop what they all love doing. Some of them had already played in concerts and won awards. The jazz pianist really stood out for me!

“I was really honoured that the children put on such a special concert just for us that I will never forget. Seeing one of Myisrael’s amazing projects in action made me truly appreciate what a worthwhile cause it is and the importance of giving to charities such as theirs.”

 

When Jemima Spalter was preparing for her Batmitzvah

Jemima told us “When I was deciding on a charity for my fundraising project, Myisrael’s partnership with Dental Volunteers for Israel was perfect as all children in Israel regardless of background should be able to visit the dentist like we can in the UK.  Also, one of my grandparents volunteered as a dentist in Israel so it is lovely to be able to continue this support.  By working with Myisrael I was able to find a smaller charity and I know that all of the money raised goes straight to the children.  Thank you Myisrael and DVI!”

 

Jake and Jude's sponsored walk

“Usually these Ethiopian children do very little to mark this momentous time. If they attend a shul they may be called up to the Torah but unfortunately, their families can do very little else for them.

“The money that Jude and Jake raised is going to allow two boys to celebrate their Barmitzvahs in a wonderful and joyous Simcha. We are so proud of Jude and Jake for sharing their special day with other children who are less fortunate.” 

 

Dalia Haber, mother of Barmitzvah Boy
" We wanted to make Matty's Barmitzvah experience as meaningful as possible. With the support of Myisrael, Matty chose to do a triathlon to help Itay, a child the same age who was about to have a very different Barmitzvah experience.  Through training hard and telling friends and family why he was doing it, Matty raised a lot more money than he thought possible and really gave Itay something life-changing." 

James Levy, Barmitzvah boy
"I really enjoyed climbing Mount Snowdon to raise money for Myisrael.  I was a bit nervous at first as I wasn't sure how difficult it would be, but I managed to do it and felt really proud. 

It was amazing to receive so much support from my friends and family who were so generous." 

 

At Myisrael we understand what an important moment it is when a boy or girl celebrates his or her Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

We know too, that this is a time for thinking of others less fortunate and that many Bar/Bat Mitzvah boys and girls want to do something special to help others.

At Myisrael, we want to encourage every Bar/Bat Mitzvah boy/girl to get involved in any way they can, choosing a charity that is meaningful to them.

For example, you could choose to donate some of your gift money to a charity of your choice, you could bring your family to visit one of our projects in Israel or you could set up a fundraising page - challenge yourself and ask people to sponsor you.
For more ideas of ways that you could raise money look at our A-Z of fundraising ideas.

Set up a personal fundraising page through our Website here.

We have already had lots of boys and girls celebrate their Bar/Bat Mitzvah by supporting MyIsrael projects and you can see some examples on our News page or watch this short film to get inspired!
