New Mitzvah Organzier

Is your child looking for a meaningful Mitzvah Project? We were very touched to learn about Remember Us: The Holocaust Bnai Mitzvah Project. The idea is simple. The Remember Us Project invites every child who is preparing for a Bar/Bat Mitzvah to remember a child who was lost in the Holocaust. Thru this Website, your child is provided with the name of a lost child, info about him/her and suggestions for simple acts of remembrance.

Some suggestions include:

* Doing a Mitzvot b’shem (in the name of the child)

* Mentioning the child in a speech from the bimah

* Taking on the Mitzvah of saying Kaddish

* Lighting a yahrzeit candle yearly

The Website makes it easy to request a name. There is no charge to participate, but voluntary donations do sustain them so they can bring this opportunity to another child.

The Website also features touching stories from parents and children on how this program changed their lives and how it moved their guests when they learned about what their child had done. Read what they had to say here.
