Tikkun Olam: Into the Mitzvah Day AT HOME EDITION

Out of an abundance of caution and concern for our community's health and welfare, we have decided to turn our originally planned in-person Into the Mitzvah Day celebration into an at-home celebration of mitzvot and Tu B'Shvat.

Our "mitzvah team" is pulling together the fullest (and fully free) take-home kit of goodies we can imagine, so you can have a very special Into the Mitzvah Day celebration in the comfort of your own bubble. Enjoy a day of crafting and feel-good activities that will lead to a multitude of mitzvot appropriate for all ages. Thank you to our kit sponsors: PJ Library, PJTC Sisterhood and PJTC Men's Club!

PS - For those hoping for an in-person Mitzvah Day, we are working on adding a Social Action/Tikkun Olam portion to our May 6-8 Community Kallah Weekend; we also hope to reschedule the Tzedakah Kickball Tournament for later in the year. In the meantime, let's do some good ASAP!
