MITZVAH DAY - Sunday, May 19, 2024

Mitzvah Day Activities 10:30am-12:30pm & Blood Drive 9am-3pm


Get ready to roll up your sleeves and turn your Jewish values into action!  This opportunity only comes once a year, and it’s not just for Social Action committee members - EVERYONE is invited to come and participate!  We have many mitzvot for many hands - from young to old and everyone in between. 
Mitzvah Day is a chance to get together with your TJ family for fun focused on social action projects and donation collections that demonstrate our core Jewish values.

We will be collecting the following items for donation

1) Travel sized toiletries

2) Kid's Costume Drive

3) Book Drive (New or gently used books)

Here's a highlight of some of our activities:

  • New & used book drive 
  • Kid's costume drive 
  • Red Cross Blood Drive from 9am - 3pm. Sign Up to donate blood here: Donors can also make appointments on the Blood Donor App or online at and use the Sponsor Code: TempleJudea to find the blood drive.
  • Creating bookmarks and fleece blankets
  • Packing pencil cases for students
  • Packing hygiene & feminine hygiene kits 
  • Packing Skid Row "Doggie Bags" with treats, kibble, and dog toys
  • Religious School Families, join us in the Goor Sanctuary at 10am as our teens present their final tzedek projects in the Social hall. They'll also share experiences and insights about the various social justice issues they've explored and the ways they've identified to make a positive impact in the world. This a fantastic opportunity to engage in meaningful, multi-generational conversations about social justice.
