Temple Judea's Social Action Committee is proud to present this year's Mitzvah Day. We want to make sure that everyone is able to participate in meaningful projects whether in-person or in your homes.
Sunday, May 23, 2021:
9:00 - 4:00pm
We can't wait to see the ways Temple Judea will make a difference!
WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
We want to insure that all can participate, whether by reserving a slot to complete projects in-person, or by a contactless drive-thru.
We are happy to have you join us on campus for an hour-long timeslot to complete the projects you (and your family) select.
Please note: we require advance notice to safely prepare materials ahead of time. Additionally, due to COVID safety precautions, some projects will require you bring supplies from home.
We welcome you to participate by picking up the supplies for your selected mitzvah projects (10am-12pm), completing them at home, and returning in the afternoon (until 4pm) with completed projects.
Please note: we require advance notice to safely prepare materials ahead of time. Additionally, due to COVID safety precautions, some projects will require you to use supplies from home.
ALL participants are invited to drop off items that we are collecting (see below).
Please consider making a donation to Mitzvah Day to cover the costs of materials and supplies!
