Mitzvah Projects

Special occasion coming up? Mazel Tov!

A bar/bat mitzvah. A birth or a marriage. A big birthday, graduation, or retirement. On special occasions or just any day, make important moments even more meaningful with a Camp Tevya Mitzvah Project or gift to support campers and the camp you love. Friends and family can join in, and together you can increase the Scholarship Fund that aids camper families–or strengthen other aspects of Tevya you care deeply about. Todah rabah, thank you VERY much!

CURRENT MITZVAH PROJECTS

Avery Meer

Bar Mitzvah on June 16, 2018

Give to Avery’s Project

In honor of his bar mitzvah, Avery and his family are supporting tuition scholarships at Camp Tevya. They will MATCH all gifts up to $5,000 made to camp in Avery’s honor. Avery’s mother Deborah, a Tevya alum, says,

“The purpose of this “B’Nei Mitzvah Project” is to recognize Camp Tevya as the starting point for a lifetime of engagement in the greater Jewish community. For Avery and me, Tevya is where the creation, intent and celebration of our Jewish identities thrived. This is a real “dor v’dor” theme in our family: My mother (Avery’s grandmother, Joan Schwartz), was raised attending Young Judea in the 1940’s; I attended Tevya from 1984-1988 and Avery is going on his 4th year at camp.

“We feel a gift matching program will extend the opportunity to make an intentional, meaningful gift. We ask that each year other families continue this tradition of the B’Nei Mitzvah gift match. Please join us in supporting Camp Tevya as the first step forward for our B’Nei Mitzvah-age children in their lifetime of commitment to the Jewish community. Thank you!”
