“The world rests on three things: study, worship, and acts of
loving kindness.” (Pirke Avot)
Each of these three things is part of preparing to become a Bar/Bat Mitzvah at Temple Sholom. For the Mitzvah project, we ask each student to undertake a volunteer opportunity through which they can make a significant contribution to the community. The specific nature and scope of the project will be determined in consultation with the Assigned Rabbi. A brief description of the mitzvah project is included in the D’var Sholom as part of the student’s “bio,” and students speak about their project as part of their D’var Torah.
