Be A Twin
The NACOEJ Bar/Bat Mitzvah Twinning Program provides a terrific opportunity for Jewish youth to get to know, and help, their Ethiopian-Israeli peers.
As a Twin you will receive:
- A certificate sent to your rabbi before the event
- The name, photo and bio of your Twin
- If you visit Israel, arrangements can be made so you can visit your twin
Your twin will receive:
- A gift to his/her school in Israel to help buy essential supplies such as books (textbooks and reading), computers, and other educational materials. Classes may enjoy a class trip, and have a group Bar/ Bat Mitzvah party!
- Letters you send your twin

Other Ways You Can Expand This Mitzvah Project
Many American "Twins" may decide to take on a Mitzvah Project as an element of their Bar/ Bat Mitzvah. NACOEJ can help you plan meaningful tzedakah projects.
