Mitzvah Day - 17 November

What is Mitzvah Day?
Mitzvah Day was born out of the belief that we can all make a positive difference to our world by taking action – together. On a single day, Mitzvah Day, the Jewish community together with other communities and individuals wanting to improve the world in some small way, take part in a range of activities simply to help others. For example, On Mitzvah Day participants collect and distribute food, befriend and sing to seniors and people that are socially isolated, clean parks, prepare food and make and send gifts to needy children. Our vision is to reduce hardship and poverty, to help our environment and to bring a little joy where it is needed, all through hands-on participation. It is a way for people to take an active part regardless of their religion, age, sex or location. Mitzvah Day brings enthusiastic volunteers to those who need support. Mitzvah Day serves as a platform for creating local relationships, Jews with Jews and Jews with those from other faiths and communities. By working together for the common good we build stronger communities making them better places to live.
