Mitzvah Projects

"At the time of my Bar Mitzvah, the opportunity to tangibly save a life was far and above the most significant justification of such a great cause. It did not seem fair that a child's right to life would be determined solely on geography, and Save a Child's Heart echoes this sentiment in their mission. [SACH] sees every child equally, regardless of religious, ethnic, or political background; the sign of a true humanitarian organization." – Jacob, San Diego

Looking for a meaningful Bar or Bat Mitzvah project?

B'nai Mitzvah select a fundraising and awareness project that utilizes their unique talents to help children suffering from life-threatening heart disease receive treatment in Israel.

To participate in a Mitzvah Project, you contribute your time, energy, and generosity to your own specially designed fundraising and awareness campaign. Of course, we're here to support you along the way! We'll help you create a personalized web page to share with friends and family where they can learn about your project and make donations online.

All B'nai Mitzvah will receive a thank you gift from Save a Child's Heart at the completion of their project.
If you're planning a visit to Israel, as a B'nai Mitzvah you are invited to celebrate with a visit to the Children's Home, where you will meet first-hand, the children whose lives were helped by your efforts.

Noah's story

On the occasion of his bar mitzvah, Noah sent the following note to friends and family: "Dylan is my brother and my best friend. What many of you don't know is that he was born with a congenital heart defect. This was discovered when he was only 6 months old. Shortly after my bar mitzvah, Dylan will require surgery to close the hole in his heart. But Dylan is the lucky one. He has been followed by experts at Phoenix Children's Hospital all of his life. He has health insurance that will help pay for what would otherwise be an unaffordable, yet required procedure. Many children are NOT as lucky as Dylan. In honor of Dylan and my bar mitzvah, I am working on a fundraising project with Save a Child's Heart."
