No need to be a Mother to be A Mitzvah Mama!  


Mitzvah Mamas is a place to Do Jewish. Each of us is on our own Jewish journey. We walk through many doors. Mitzvah Mamas is a place for Jewish women 18 and up to come together and escort one another through Jewish portals and know each other. Each month Rosh Chodesh is marked with an hour long gathering which points us toward finding gratitude and noticing kindness. Other activites, scheduled and popup, are shared throughout the year in the Mitzvah Mama FaceBook group.

Mitzvah Mamas promotes Unity without Uniformity 

Mitzvah Mamas has no dues or fees. 

Mitzvah Mamas encourage Jewish women 13+ (or those exploring Judaism) to DO JEWISH 

How do you become a Mitzvah Mama?

You are a Mitzvah Mama, simply by tagging along to anything in person or in our social media. Whether you choose to be part of a formal friend group, or simply engage when something seems interesting, we want you to feel loved. We want to be a place where you can innovate, share how you personally 'Do Jewish' and help forge connections with others.

We hope Mitzvah Mamas becomes part of your Jewish journey.  

In partnership with MOMentum & Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford, Mitzvah Mamas builds cohorts of moms who can participate in Free* Israel trips and engage together locally. 

We seek ways to inspire and empower women to change the world and enhance our home communities  through Jewish values. You may choose to build and be part a Chug, which are always forming.
