MITZVAH DAY!

a day of tikkun olam
for the entire congregation

We have 18 projects taking place inside and outside the Temple. There is something for everyone to do and we need everyone's helping hands.
Register On-Line Now! Pre-registration helps us plan and is necessary for space-limited projects like cooking for CASPAR. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a49aaaa23abf58-mitzvah1

 
We need your help getting ready! Will you:
1. Co-captain a project?
