“Tzedakah and acts of kindness to others are the equivalent to all of the mitzvot in the Torah.” Jerusalem Talmud, Pe’ah 1:1.
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.
