Mitzvah Project Challenge

Are you a teen looking for a Mitzvah Project for your upcoming milestone? 

Are you a youth organization looking for a foundation to support?


Look no further!

The Journey For The Living (JFTL) Mitzvah Project Challenge is for Bar/Bat Mitzvah age teens, Youth Organizations, or High School/College Clubs to raise money and awareness to support Holocaust education.

The purpose of the JFTL Mitzvah Project is to walk, run or ride 15 miles in one month and raise funds to support the Mark Schonwetter Holocaust Education Foundation (MSHEF). The mission of MSHEF is to expand and support Holocaust education for students by providing funds necessary for educators to teach the lessons learned from the past and how they relate to today.


In 1942, Mark Schonwetter along with his mother and younger sister walked 15 miles from their hometown in Brzotek, Poland to go to the Dembice Ghetto where they thought they would be safer from the Nazis.


The Journey For The Living Mitzvah Project is a great way for young teens and young adults to understand the importance of remembering the Holocaust and promoting awareness and fitness at the same time.

The teen will receive their own customizable fundraising website page that they can share with friends and family to support their Journey.
