Mitzvah Project

Slide background

Closing Gaps – Opening Horizons!

Youth Centers of Israel celebrates your Bar / Bat Mitzvah with you.

YCOI’s Mitzvah Project gives you an opportunity to mark this occasion in a meaningful way.

We believe you will have a personally fulfilling experience as you help thousands of poverty stricken children to learn, play, thrive, and eventually break free from poverty.

Even small contributions can make a difference.  Your work could sponsor a child in our after school program for a month, or perhaps a toddler in daycare for a year!  There are so many ways that your work, dedication, and goodness can make a difference!
