Especially for B’nai Mitzvah Students
Young Lion of Judah Program
The Young Lion of Judah program is a unique program coordinated by the Jewish Volunteer Center of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation for students who are seeking to put more mitzvah in their Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
Participants earn community service hours while helping others in Miami. And upon completion of the program, they also receive special thank-you gifts and a party in their honor.

Young Lion of Judah Program Project for 2012-2013 Partners
In addition to choosing individual volunteer opportunities, the Jewish Volunteer Center is partnering with the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation to pair students with Holocaust survivors who never had the chance to become B’nai Mitzvah. Students and survivors are spending 10 hours together over the course of four programs from October 2012 through January 2013. Projects include learning about the Holocaust, touring the Holocaust Memorial with survivors, and beautifying and planting at the Memorial.
Students are being asked to honor their survivor partner during their Bar or Bat Mitzvah service and make a gift of $180 to the Annual Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Campaign. They will receive a certificate of completion and their Young Lion of Judah jewelry gift – a silver bracelet for girls and a silver talit clip for boys.
