Celebrate your Bar/Bat Mitzvah with Leket Israel
Volunteering with Leket Israel is a meaningful and memorable way to honor a Bar/Bat Mitzvah; celebrate this special milestone participating in one of Leket Israel’s projects to help alleviate nutritional insecurity in Israel. For each activity, the group is welcomed with a brief overview of Leket Israel and an explanation of its projects; then are given time to volunteer in the selected hands-on project. At the conclusion, the Bar/Bat Mitzvah is presented with a personalized certificate honoring their time volunteering and reaching this special milestone.
LEKET ISRAEL’S PROJECTS
Project Leket- Pick fruits/vegetables for distribution to Israel’s needy with Leket Israel’s gleaning initiative. Groups are booked for a 2 hour picking session at our fields in Rehovot or Moshav Nahalal; a wonderful activity for groups of all ages and sizes. Your child can bring family and friends to join in this significant work which is both rewarding and enjoyable. At the end of your gleaning session, we will present a personalized certificate in your child’s honor.

Leket Israel’s Sandwich for School Kids Project prepares and distributes 8,400 volunteer prepared sandwiches daily to kids in 115 schools throughout Israel.
