Twelve & Thirteen

To give is to receive

Our b’nei mitzvah programs broaden awareness of social issues and provide hands-on volunteering opportunities for our families to give back. It’s flexible, fun and rewarding.

Delivered through two streams, our Twelve batmitzvah and Thirteen barmitzvah programs. Both cohorts participate in a wide-range of volunteering sessions with our charity partners.
