It's a Really BIG Deal!
Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a really BIG deal. You are now a part of the adult Jewish community. You may not get to drive or vote yet but you can help someone say kaddish by making a minyan, you can have an aliyah and you can repair the world.
So it's time to hone your mitzvah making skills. Over the course of the next year, your mission is to participate in 13 mitzvot - one each month and one over the course of the whole year.
Complete 13 mitzvot before celebrating your Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
This is your Mitzvah Mission map. This map makes 13 stops throughout Israel. At each stop there is a mitzvah to learn about and then do! After you do each mitzvah there’s a chance for you to share a little bit about what you did and how it felt.
Each month you will go back to the Mitzvah map and learn about your next mitzvah. You can also click on the links below to learn about each month's mitzvah.
To begin your journey click on the blue airplane at Ben Gurion Airport. You will find instructions there about how to proceed. You can zoom in and out and move the map around using your mouse or trackpad.
Then click on the blue airplane.
