While Beth El has an abundance of community service projects year round, our annual Mitzvah Day is our largest and most impactful social action event of the year. Every October, our congregation mobilizes its membership, and springs into action, by performing an amazing array of meaningful community service projects, as well as holding monumental collection efforts — all occurring on the very same day.
Collectively, we engage in a concerted effort to improve the quality of thousands of lives of those in need our community, Israel, and worldwide.
Join us for Mitzvah Day on Sunday, October 25! Help us help those in need in our community and beyond. Donate items and sign up for a project by contacting the captain of the project of your choice. Masks must be worn for all in-person projects, and proper distancing is required.

Thanks to Mitzvah Day co-chairs Jon Polon, Donna Shimshi, and Geoff and Jodi Chesman, Beth El had another phenomenal annual day of service in which about 500 congregants helped people in need in our community and throughout the world. We are delighted to share our project outcomes with you. Several projects below will continue throughout the year. The high turnout, enthusiasm, and energy on Mitzvah Day demonstrates that Tikkun Olam is a core value of Beth El. Get involved and join us!
