Bar/Bat Mitzvah Twinning Program

A Bar/Bat Mitzvah marks the beginning of a child's lifelong adult connection to the Jewish people. The Bar/Bat Mitzvah Twinning Program is an increasingly popular way to strengthen a child's identification with his or her Jewish heritage by forging bonds with individual children who were murdered during the Holocaust. Choosing to participate in the Program offers the opportunity to remember and learn about the life of a child who was murdered during the Holocaust.
