JIFLA’s Mitzvah Project

Mazel Tov on your simcha!

Planning a Mitzvah project is a wonderful way to make a positive impact on your community and connect with the values of responsibility and giving back that are so important in our tradition.

Engaging in a Mitzvah project allows you to contribute to causes that are meaningful to you, helping others and creating a ripple of goodness in the world. Not only does it provide a chance to demonstrate your commitment to Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), but it also helps you develop leadership skills, empathy, and a sense of accomplishment.

To complete JIFLA’s Mitzvah project, we request that the Mitzvah candidate learn about JIFLA (we provide materials), our cause, how we help our community and ask you to help raise money to support our organization. We provide suggested letters to customize, and suggestions.

Whatever project you choose to support, we know you’ll make a positive difference and in a meaningful and impactful way.

Wishing you all the best as you plan your Mitzvah project!
