Family Mitzvah Work

Each family, in consultation with the rabbi, will select mitzvot in several categories to fulfill as a family over the year preceding the Bar/Bat Mitzvah. A plan will be discussed at the initial meeting with the rabbi and follow-up will occur during the weekly meetings with the rabbi starting three months before the date.  See following links for mitzvah work and tzedakah ideas:
