Chai Mitzvah's mission is to collaborate with existing community organizations to facilitate greater Jewish engagement. In order to accomplish this goal, Chai Mitzvah seeks to collaborate with community umbrella organizations, such as Federations, JCC's and Rabbinical Councils.

The Ignite Program offers an  opportunity to bring a number of Chai Mitzvah groups throughout the community. Chai Mitzvah offers a stipend to hire a project coordinator who works within the  community to create, maintain and strengthen Chai Mitzvah groups.

The Community Coordinator showcases existing opportunities to fulfill the Jewish bucket list of learning, social action and ritual/spiritual practice. Chai Mitzvah works to increase the demand for the supply of Jewish engagement opportunities that exist within most communities. For more information about how to bring an Ignite Program to your community contact us at


Start a Chai Mitzvah group with friends, colleagues, or in your synagogue or organization. Take on the Chai Mitzvah challenge and infuse Judaism into a professional or friendship group.
