Upcoming Bar or Bat Mitzvah? It’s Time!
With the mitzvah season starting in September, throngs of seventh graders begin attending their friends’ b’nai mitzvahs.
This is also the perfect time for parents and 2013/2014 bar/bat mitzvah students to start their mitzvah project!
Once school is in session, any free time will diminish quickly. That is why during the month of August, when kids come home from camp and school books are still shut tight (except for that dreaded summer reading project), is the prime time to begin a mitzvah project.
The latter part of the summer can be the most fulfilling time to organize a long-term project, while the school pressure is off & the free time is available.
