Discover the richness of Tikkun Olam by helping Yemin Orde's at-risk children receive the benefits and blessings of a B’nai Mitzvah project!

B'nai Mitzvah projects can combine fundraising elements with special programs that help the at-risk youth at Yemin Orde Youth Village.

Participants can hold fundraisers or celebration parties and ask guests, friends, and family members for gifts to support various needs at the Village.
