The 40 Year Old Bat Mitzvah

Tikkun Olam

Many b’nai mitzvot programs now including a tzedakah project.

Tzedakah is often translated as “charity” but actually is more akin to justice and righteousness.

Tikkun olam is a concept in Jewish mysticism of repairing the world.

Here are some worthy projects and organizations:

I read about Challah for Hunger in the UCLA alumni magazine. Two UCLA seniors, Alisa Malki and Caryn Roth, created a project through Hillel to raise money for Darfur refugees. Each Thursday volunteers gather at UCLA’s Hillel House to bake challah, which they sell on campus on Friday.

American Friends of Magen David Adom (Israel’s Red Cross)


Jewish Coalition Against Domestic Abuse

Boys & Girls Club of Southwest Riverside County has clubhouses in Temecula near Old Town and by Erle Stanley Gardner Middle School in Redhawk. They also have Murrieta and Lake Elsinore locations. They provide a safe, fun place for kids to hang out after school and day camps during school breaks. My seven year old and I “kept it real” playing dodgeball, jumprope, and pool with the kids at the Old Town clubhouse for Disney’s “Give a Day, Get a Day” program.
