Plan to join us for our annual Mitzvah Day from 9:00am to 12:00pm on Sunday, February 23, 2020.
A variety of projects means that there will be a fun and meaningful activity for all ages and abilities.
Mitzvah Day is a wonderful opportunity to engage and work together in helpful and meaningful projects of direct action, and advocacy to better our community, by doing mitzvot for our neighbors and non-profit community partners. All are welcome - whether you are a member of Judea Reform or not!
