NA’AMAT USA B’NAI MITZVAH PROJECTS

Your Bar/Bat Mitzvah is a very joyous and meaningful occasion for you and your family. What better way to commemorate this milestone than by helping others in need.  NA’AMAT USA offers several ways you can celebrate this achievement while supporting Israel at the same time.  We can turn your passion into a unique mitzvah project.

Tech 4 Teens

Some teenagers in Israel aren’t quite as fortunate as you are. Some come from underprivileged backgrounds, have learning disabilities, family problems, behavioral issues and other challenges. NA’AMAT creates a safe, empowering environment for these troubled teens struggling in traditional high schools. With 17 Technological high schools and 2 residential youth villages, we offer training for at-risk youth in communications, photography, computer graphics and culinary skills as well as basic academic subjects. However, as technology evolves, we need to provide the tools our students need to excel. They lack the basics – computers, software, printers, cameras, projectors, all the things we may take for granted. NA’AMAT gives these teens a second chance. They gain confidence, self-esteem, acquire professional and vocational skills that enable them to graduate and become productive citizens of Israel. With your help, our students can thrive and succeed through our Tech 4 Teens program.

Teens for Tots

Child at a daycare center in IsraelNA’AMAT has over 200 day care centers caring for more than 17,000 infants and toddlers from the age of 3 months to 4 years. The Centers are located in large cities, agricultural settlements, development towns and Arab villages. NA’AMAT makes it possible for working mothers to remain in their jobs even when their children are very young. Many centers enroll children from families that are in distress, providing financial assistance on a sliding scale based on need. These children depend on us to provide the loving care they deserve and you can help.
