Bar/Bat Mitzvah Twinning Program

The NACOEJ Bar/Bat Mitzvah Twinning Program provides a terrific opportunity for Jewish youth to get to know, and help, their Ethiopian-Israeli peers.

As a Twin you will receive:

  • A certificate sent to your rabbi before the event
  • A handmade embroidery, made in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia by Ethiopian Jews.
  • The name, photo and bio of your Twin
  • If you visit Israel, arrangements can be made so you can visit your twin


Your twin will receive:

  • A special Bar or Bat Mitzvah gift
  • A gift to his/her school in Israel to help buy essential supplies such as books (textbooks and reading), computers, and other educational materials. Classes may enjoy a class trip, and have a group Bar/ Bat Mitzvah party!
  • Letters you send your twin

Other Ways You Can Expand This Mitzvah Project
