The occasion of a b’nai mitzvah is a wonderful opportunity to enhance your connection to Israel while inspiring friends and family! Many b’nai mitzvah integrate the Jewish People’s connection to Israel into their study of their Torah portion. Making StandWithUs a part of the coming-of-age process helps support Israel, combats antisemitism, and strengthens the future of Israel.
StandWithUs programs provide meaningful ways to include your love of Israel in your b’nai mitzvah project and to connect with regional StandWithUs chapters throughout the process.

What people are saying about the
StandWithUs Bar & Bat Mitzvah Project:
The StandWithUs social media programs are so cool because that’s how my friends and I communicate, and I already know how to use these tools.
SYDNEY, LOS ANGELES
My son and I have had no idea what to do for his mitzvah project, so these ideas are really helpful to get him started.
I decided that this is the bat mitzvah project I want to do because after all the struggles with antisemitism, I decided it is enough, and this needs to stop now.
RACHEL, SAN DIEGO
I wanted to thank you for helping me succeed with my bat mitzvah project. It is so amazing to be a part of StandWithUs. I promise this is only the beginning.
