Mitzvah Day was started in 2005 as a way to increase awareness and create a greater sense of community among Temple members while helping others.
MITZVAH DAY will be held on Sunday, November 8, 2015. Temple members of all ages are invited to join us at 10:30 AM (sharp!) in I.M. Wise Hall (enter at One East 65th Street), where we will have:
• A light breakfast
• Congregational prayer
• A variety of hands-on projects to benefit others in the community

In celebration of
the 10th anniversary of Mitzvah Day and Rabbi Amy B. Ehrlich’s 26th anniversary at Temple Emanu-El, the congregation
donated $25,000 to build a school in Guatemala in her honor. The project was kept secret from Rabbi Ehrlich until it was announced during the Temple’s Mitzvah Day on November 9, 2014. Learn more »
