Federation offers a day of service

Everyone is welcome to join in CommUNITY Mitzvah Day on Sunday, March 19. It’s a day of hands-on service experiences in the Greater MetroWest community. Participants will put Jewish values of tikkun olam (repairing the world) and tzedakah (charitable giving) into action, making a real impact on the lives of others.

Activities for volunteers of all ages – both in person and at home – are available. They include filling packages of kosher-for-Passover food to benefit local community members and clients of Jewish Family Service of Central and MetroWest NJ, helping document historic Jewish cemeteries in Newark to preserve the community’s rich history, and filling bags with essential items for people experiencing homelessness.

“CommUNITY Mitzvah Day is an event my family and I look forward to every year,” Elana Wilf Tanzman, chair of the federation’s Center for Volunteerism, said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to come together and make a meaningful impact on the lives of others.”

CommUNITY Mitzvah Day programs will take place across the Greater MetroWest community throughout the day on Sunday, March 19. For more information, go to jfedgmw.org/mitzvah-day or email mitzvah@jfedgmw.org.
