B’nai Mitzvah Project Video Winners

Hundreds of kids across the country age 11-15 entered Areyvut’s annual Mitzvah Project Video Essay Contest. The contest was open to students who had a Bar/Bat Mitzvah and wanted to share their experiences with others by making a video on their Mitzvah project.

The video needed to capture why and how they incorporated the values of chesed (kindness), tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (social justice) into their Mitzvah celebration.

Congratulations to all the winners! First place winner Mitchell Abrams is from New City, NY, second place winner is Marcus Apter from West Hartford, CT and third place went to Alex Harelick from White Plains, NY.

Winning the contest also helped raise the profile of their project, the organizations that benefited and to get others involved in their work. Click here to see the winning videos and learn more about the 2010 contest.
