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 9, 2014. 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 Associate Rabbi Amy B. Ehrlich’s 26 years of service to Temple Emanu-El, the congregation donated $25,000 to build a school in Guatemala in her honor. The gift was made earlier this year, and the school in Chivaquib, Guatemala, was completed recently. The project was kept secret from Rabbi Ehrlich until it was announced during the Temple’s Mitzvah Day on November 9, 2014. Learn more »
