Mitzvah Day 

At Temple Isaiah we are 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, on the Jewish community, and on the world at large.

The History of Mitzvah Day

Mitzvah Day was first held in May 2000. It is our annual day of community service and the entire congregation is encouraged to participate in our effort to repair the world. Since its inception, Mitzvah Day has grown to be an important part of our culture in how we help others, how we create a wonderful sense of community, and how we educate our children on the values of tikkun olam.

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 that go to folks in shelters. Examples of past and present projects include making catnip toys, running a lemonade stand, filling chesed (blessing) bags with supplies for people in shelters, and volunteering on a farm.

Planning starts early and we collect materials and accept monetary donations year round. New ideas for projects are welcome, as are volunteers. Please contact the Mitzvah Day team with any thoughts or questions at
