How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. - Anne Frank
What is a Be'chol Lashon Mitzvah Project?
You can help make the world a better place through a Be'chol Lashon Mitzvah Project. A Mitzvah (mitz va) is a good deed, a charitable act, a worthy deed. Jews believe that performing Mitzvot is a means of Tikkun Olam, helping to perfect the world through through social action, community service or social justice. Be'chol Lashon works with diverse Jewish leaders to help define and achieve their community goals. Therefore a Mitzvah Project is designed to specifically target projects identified by Jewish community leaders as most urgent to help engage in Tikkun Olam, as we are all responsible for making our world a better place.
Synagogues and Organizations - Community organizations can engage in Mitzvah Projects to raise funds to help a Jewish community in need around the world. It is an opportunity to work together as a community and be part of our global Jewish people by making a gift with meaning that will impact Jews around the world for many years to come.
Bar + Bat Mitzvah - Include the global Jewish community in your dreams for the future by arranging to donate a portion of your gifts and/or invite others in the community to donate to a Mitzvah project in honor of your Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
An example of a Jewish community in need is the Abayudaya Jewish community in Uganda, Africa. Be'chol Lashon works with the community to improve healthcare and develop sustainable projects. The Tobin Health Center, for example, provides medical services to the Jewish community as well as their Christian and Muslim neighbors, fostering good will and cooperation among the communities, combating anti-Semitism and promoting peaceful co-existence. There are also specifically Jewish needs such as building the Synagogue and Jewish Community Center.
