These days, some synagogues require bar and bat mitzvah students to complete a so-called “mitzvah project.” This project often involves a religious, social or community-based task to present as part of their bar or bat mitzvah. In fact, it’s one of the most meaningful parts of the preparations, so here are some tips for choosing your child’s project.

While there certainly aren’t any specific rules, it’s always a good idea to give something the young person will treasure. So, use this bar and bat mitzvah gifts guide to help pick out the perfect present.
