Choose Shaare Zedek Medical Center for your Bar/Bat Mitzvah chesed project

Shaare Zedek is known as the “Hospital with a Heart” for its reputation of treating patients with the highest level of care.

Your Bar/Bat Mitzvah chesed project can really make a difference! Shaare Zedek receives no government funding for new equipment and facilities, so we rely solely on our donors’ generosity to operate this important facility in the heart of Jerusalem. Doing a Bar/Bat Mitzvah chesed project is a meaningful & fun experience that you will always remember!
