Mitzvah Miami Offers Kids and Teens Community Service, Volunteer Opportunities

As a new school year begins, the Jewish Volunteer Center of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation wants kids and teens to know about Mitzvah Miami, a group of volunteer and community service projects just for the younger generation.

Starting right before a student's Bar or Bat Mitzvah all the way through high school graduation, Mitzvah Miami offers up special service opportunities that spread the Jewish value of tikkun olam, or making the world a better place, throughout Miami.
