Mitzvah Day 

At Temple Isaiah we take very seriously our responsibility for repairing the world through individual and collaborative action. Tikkun Olam represents our caring for both ourselves and for others. 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.


Mitzvah Day 2021

Mitzvah Day 2021 will look a little different this year! We welcome everyone to participate in this congregation-wide celebration in a way that is comfortable for you! We offer projects that are in person and socially distanced, projects that can be done on your own time in your home, book and supply drives, and more! Join us in doing something important, meaningful, and fun. Our work supports those in desperate need and together we can make a difference.

Mitzvah Day, first held in May 2000, is our annual day of community service when we invite our entire congregation to help repair the world in a number of ways. Since then, it has grown to be an important part of our culture both in how we help others while creating a wonderful sense of community.

Some projects are in-house while others are out in the community. We have opportunities for all ages and abilities, from weeding and gardening to packing snack bags and decorating cards  and pillow cases that go to those in shelters. Some recent new projects include a group making catnip toys, a lemonade stand, and filling chesed, or blessing bags with supplies for people in shelters.

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 by email at MitzvahDay@templeisaiah.net.

Support Mitzvah Day with a gift!
