​Mazel Tov on your upcoming Bar or Bat Mitzvah!

We know what you’re thinking…”Oy Vey!”, what am I going to do for my mitzvah project?

Well, here’s some GREAT NEWS. JRA’s Bar / Bat Mitzvah Program is the perfect way to get credit for your mitzvah project, hang out with friends, have fun, and do something really important and helpful for families in your area. What’s more, you can share this project with your family and friends and you even get a cool JRA t-shirt and certificate!!

Here’s what you need to do:

1.  Pack and deliver food at two JRA monthly food distributions.
2.  Invite friends and the whole mishpacha to join you in packing and delivering food at a third food distribution, where you’ll receive your cool JRA t-shirt and certificate for completing your project. **Please note that the third distribution can be before or after your Bar/Bat Mitzvah and must be within one year of the two required distributions.


1.  Volunteer 10 hours of your time for any combination of activities helping JRA. How you ask? Pack and deliver food, do a JRAid gig, hold a canned tuna drive, start a brigade (collection) with your friends, or let us know how you’d like to help!
2.  Invite friends and family to join you at a food distribution packing and delivering food, where you will receive your JRA t-shirt and certificate of completion.  Can’t make it to a distribution? Let us know and we’ll send you your t-shirt and certificate!
