Mitzvah Day

Mitzvah Day started in 2005 as a way to increase awareness and create a greater sense of community among Temple Emanu-El congregants while helping others. Temple members of all ages are invited to join us at 10:15 AM in I.M. Wise Hall, where we will have a light breakfast, congregational prayer and a variety of hands-on projects to benefit others in the community.

Please join our Temple Community as adults and children work side by side. All congregants will be able to participate and provide a connection in helping those in need.

Many volunteers are needed to assemble over 2,000 packages for projects like:

  • Activity Boxes for the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore
  • Welcome Packages for Good Shepherd Residence for young girls who are living within the foster care system
  • Holiday Fun Packages for the New York Council on Adoptable Children
  • Mommy & Me Diaper Bags for Project Sunshine
  • Essential Packages for the Bowery Mission
  • Milk & Cookies for Jan Hus and New York Center for Children
  • Arrival Kits for the Children’s Village

Questions? Contact the Tikkun Olam Committee at 212-744-1400 ext. 452 or tikkunolam@emanuelnyc.org.
