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 2017 will be held on Sunday, November 12, 2017. 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

Questions should be directed to the
Tikkun Olam Committee. Call (212) 744-1400,
ext. 452 or send a message.



In 2014, Temple Emanu-El
celebrated its 10th Mitzvah Day.

As part of the 2014 program, it was announced
that the congregation had donated $25,000 to build
a school in Guatemala in honor of Rabbi Amy Ehrlich’s
26 years of service to Temple Emanu-El. The project was kept secret from Rabbi Ehrlich until it was announced during Mitzvah Day.

We invite all Temple members to join our
efforts and to experience the feeling of gratification
that comes from helping others.
