Make Your Bar/Bat Mitzvah More Meaningful with Jordan River Village

A Bar & Bat Mitzvah is a celebration that symbolizes your entrance into adulthood and a connection to the Jewish people, Tikkun Olam, and Israel. We hope you will choose to partner with Jordan River Village to help make these connections meaningful and fun!

  • Images, videos and written materials
  • Assistance with planning a visit to see the Village


Raise funds for kids at Jordan River Village by:

  • Asking guests to make a donation in lieu of gifts
  • Donating a portion of your gifts
  • Crowd fundraise with your own online fundraising page

These funds can be designated for a specific program or project of your choice at the Village. We can also help you develop a menu of funding opportunities
