Mitzvah Day


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.



 
 
Because of its overwhelming success, Mitzvah Day has become one of our most popular activities — drawing hundreds of volunteers.

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 »
