B’nai Mitzvah Volunteer Opportunities

JFCS is committed to creating meaningful opportunities to help B’nai Mitzvah students foster a connection to our community and begin a lifelong dedication to service. Projects can be customized for each child!

Personalized Fundraiser
Create a custom fundraiser or mitzvah project to benefit JFCS! We will build a personalized web page including a student photo, information about your mitzvah project, and why the mitzvah is important to you. You can choose to support any JFCS program or service that is meaningful to you.
