At the HOLY SIMCHAS CHESED PROJECT, our vision is to create joy-filled and meaningful Bar and Bat Mitzvah parties in Israel for children who are orphans or coming from other difficult backgrounds.  

We believe that every child deserves to be cherished and celebrated.

We work to provide them with a memorable and meaningful celebration that will leave a lasting impression.

Through the HOLY SIMCHAS CHESED PROJECT, we strive to touch lives, create lasting memories, and inspire a sense of hope.


Our mission is to transform the lives of these young individuals by providing them with unforgettable significant celebrations, infusing their Bar and Bat Mitzvah experiences with love, compassion, and the essence of Jewish tradition. 

Through our dedicated efforts, we aim to instill in them a sense of belonging, confidence, and hope for their future just like we did for Natan Simva and others who you see in video talking about the significance of his HOLY SIMCHAS bar mitzvah after his mother died just four months prior to his thirteenth birthday.


We envision a future where every child in Israel, regardless of their background, can celebrate their Bar and Bat Mitzvah with joy, surrounded by love, and connected to their cultural heritage. 

With utmost dedication, we collaborate with event professionals, caring volunteers, and local communities to curate personalized, awe-inspiring celebrations. 

Each event is designed to reflect the uniqueness of the honoree, ensuring that their journey into adulthood is marked with an experience that they will cherish forever.

Together, with a compassionate heart and an unwavering commitment, we invite you to embark on this journey of spreading smiles, one celebration at a time. 


At the HOLY SIMCHAS PROJECT, we recognize the pressing need to bridge the gap between bereaved children and children from broken families and the available resources for their Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations. As the number of young souls in challenging circumstances continues to rise, the demand for services by industry professionals outweighs the available support.

Those willing to volunteer their professional services  have volunteered a lot are overtaxed. Meanwhile there are still many such smachot to be made. 

While the professionals in the HOLY SIMCHAS  network are always willing to provide a discount for such cases, we don't feel that it's right for us to ask them to volunteer too frequently. After all they have to feed their families.


Our mission is to address this need and ensure that every child referred to us can experience the profound joy and significance of their Bar or Bat Mitzvah with a meaningful celebration. Through your invaluable help and support, we aim to secure the necessary funding to cover all aspects of these cherished events, ensuring that no child is left without the opportunity to celebrate this life-changing milestone.

We currently aim to raise just $3,000 per bar/bat mitzva to pay for the expenses of:

-a venue - food - music - a photographer - a magnet photographer

We aim to provide 10 fully funded parties in 2024.


With your generous contributions and the support of passionate industry professionals willing to volunteer or discount their services, we envision a future where every bereaved or disadvantaged child in Israel can have a beautiful and unforgettable Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration. The HOLY SIMCHAS PROJECT is committed to creating a pathway of hope and empowerment for these young souls through the power of celebration and cultural heritage.

By providing proper funding for each case referred to us, we can ensure that every aspect of the celebration is taken care of—from event planning and coordination to catering, entertainment, and venue arrangements. Our collaborative efforts will enable these children to embrace their Jewish heritage, experience love and support from their community, and find strength in their journey to adulthood.


Together, we can continue to create a profound impact on the lives of bereaved children and children from broken families, transforming their Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations into moments of healing, joy, and belonging. The HOLY SIMCHAS PROJECT seeks to instill hope, resilience, and a sense of self-worth in these young individuals, empowering them to navigate life's challenges with courage and determination.

By joining hands with industry professionals, volunteers, and compassionate supporters like you, we can pave the way for a brighter future for these young souls. Your contributions will not only make a tangible difference in their lives but also demonstrate the transformative power of unity and compassion within the Jewish community.

Together, let us ensure that no child is left without the chance to celebrate their heritage, embrace their uniqueness, and cherish the memories of their Bar and Bat Mitzvah celebrations for a lifetime. Your support will create a lasting impact, making dreams come true for these young souls as they embark on a path of hope, love, and empowerment.



Their unwavering commitment to fostering community, embracing tradition, and supporting charitable causes inspires the Kanush couple  to take a new approach to SMACHOT.  

Each celebration that this couple perform at or organize is met   with intention, creativity, and a spirit of unity.

Eliyahu and Rivkah Adinah’s legacy as pioneers in the simchas industry continue to shape the way Jewish life celebrations are cherished and commemorated. Their background as “Ballei Tsuva Simcha DJs” has placed them in the position to be of service as the managers of the HOLY SIMCHAS CHESED PROJECT of the Gush Etzion foundation.

As an organization committed to making a lasting impact, the HOLY SIMCHAS PROJECT not only creates extraordinary parties but aims to  provide ongoing support and resources to empower these young souls. We offer mentorship programs, educational opportunities, and emotional support, nurturing their growth and helping them find their place in the world.


Shayna Levine-Hefetz - Aliyahu from Baltimore to Neve Daniel

A bit of background about myself - I made aliyah about 8 years and a week ago from the US and am the mother of 4 and new grandmother of 1 😀 My husband and I (and kids who are still at home) live in Gush Etzion. I have a very good friend who also made aliyah from the US and who doesn't have family here in Israel. She is a single mom of 4 kids with no outside support who has unfortunately been struggling with significant medical issues for over two years. I have stepped in as her "sister" and raise money for her monthly to be sure that she can pay her rent and feed and clothe her kids. Not a shekel is spent on extras.

Her son is becoming bar mitzvah this summer and my friend just couldn't fathom how to make him a party. We already raise funds each month just to make ends meet... But her son deserves to be celebrated, to have a special day just like all the other boys in his class. Her son, who worries about his mom's health and works so hard to take on household tasks so she won't have to worry about them, deserves to wear nice clothes and dance at a bar mitzvah party with his friends, even though his father won't be present.

I reached out to Eliyahu Kanush at Holy Simcha Entertainment because I know that he advertises that he provides services at low or no cost to families in need. I was so excited to hear about the Holy Simchas Project. Eliyahu is not just providing the amazing music and entertainment for my friend's son's bar mitzvah, he also is helping to plan every aspect of his special day. I am working with volunteer caterers who are all donating different parts of the menu, a balloon artist is donating decorations, two other women stepped in to provide desserts and a candy bar - all donated and without knowing who they are helping!

Most parents who are in this difficult situation, who have a child whose bar/bat mitzvah is approaching and who don't have the funds to make their rent each month, don't have a close friend who is dedicated to finding a way for their child to celebrate with dignity. That is why the Holy Simcha Project is so important. We need these young proud Jewish children to know that they are valued in their community and that we won't let their special days go unmarked because of lack of funds. Holy Simcha Project is the address to provide a modest but festive party to the children most in need by connecting vendors willing to donate goods and services or give things at cost. The vision is to create a database of dedicated vendors in all parts of Israel and have a dedicated program coordinator who will ensure that all of the details of the party are planned.

I strongly encourage donations to this very worthy project so that no child is left behind on their special day because of lack of funds

This project is in coordination with the Gush Etzion Foundation.
