At Temple Isaiah, we're serious about our responsibility to contribute to repairing the world through individual and collaborative action. Our Rabbinic tradition teaches that we are required to focus on our own individual families, the Jewish community, and the world at large.

We invite everyone to participate in this congregation-wide celebration in a way that is comfortable for you. Activities include in-person and socially distanced or in your home projects, books and supply drives, a LEFTY car wash, and more! Join us in this meaningful, impactful work and have some fun at the same time. Our work supports those in need, and together we can make a difference.

     


History of Mitzvah Day

Mitzvah Day was first held in May 2000 as our annual day of community service for the entire community. Since its inception, Mitzvah Day has grown to be an important part of our culture in how we help others, create a sense of community, and educate our children on the values of tikkun olam (repairing the world).

Some projects are in-house while others are out in the community. We have opportunities for all ages and abilities, from weeding and gardening, packing snack bags, or decorating cards and pillow cases for those in shelters. Examples of past and present projects include making catnip toys, running a lemonade stand, filling chesed (blessing) bags, and volunteering on a farm.

Materials and monetary donations are accepted year round. New ideas for projects and volunteers are welcome. Please contact the Mitzvah Day team with any thoughts or questions. Support Mitzvah Day with a gift here.
