Mitzvah Day on the Move!

 

November 10 through 24, 2020

 

Due to the pandemic, Federation’s Mitzvah Day has been reimagined and is  Mitzvah Day on the Move. You can choose one of the the six Pop-Up Mitzvah projects to do at home with your family and trusted friends. These projects will help support vulnerable women and children, seniors, the homeless, hospitalized patients, and non-medical frontline workers in our community.

Each project requires a $50 donation to participate. All materials are provided and may be picked up at Jewish Federation’s office (50 Eisenhower Drive, Paramus) on November 10 and 11. Drop off completed projects to Jewish Federation’s office on or before November 24.

If you are not able to host a pop-up, you can still support Mitzvah Day on the Move through a donation or sponsorship.
