אודות התכנית

זכרו אותנו: פרוייקט זכרון השואה לבני מצווה מציע להזמין ילדים וילדות בני מצווה להתחבר לזכרם של ילדים שנספו בשואה לפני שהספיקו לעלות לתורה בעצמם.

הרעיון הוא מאוד פשוט. אנו נותנים לתלמיד/תלמידת בר המצווה ולמדריכו את שמו של ילד “ילד אבוד” , אינפורמציה לגביו והצעות לדרכים פשוטות להתחבר עם זכרו:

  • לעשות מצוות בשמו (של הילד האבוד)
  • להזכיר את הילד בדבר תורה או בנאום מהבמה
  • לקחת על עצמם את מצוות אמירת קדיש על הילד
  • להדליק נר זכרון בדרך קבע על בסיס שנתי, וכו...

What a life–changing service you provide! Every congregant present was touched by Molly’s taking a moment to remember a child we never knew, but now have a relationship with

As a psychotherapy-oriented psychiatrist, I am profoundly grateful for what you have started. It is a rare gift when we are given the opportunity to transform the shame of an intolerable and unfathomably toxic affective experience into something meaningful, interpersonally intimate, and actionable for the benefit of all



Students who participate in the program are moving from educational experience to committed Jewish action. They recognize themselves to be significant vessels of Jewish memory, and take their place in the Jewish community by publicly acting as agents of redemption.

Families report that participation adds depth and meaning to the bar/bat mitzvah experience. Parents are often moved to experience their own children offering healing for this broken place in Jewish history. Congregants and unaffiliated bar/bat mitzvah guests become witnesses to the child’s moment of spiritual leadership and redemptive action. All are given the opportunity for a deeper connection with their Jewish faith and history.
