“There are a lot of organizations doing political organizing, but I think we’re working on something different here in terms of talking about it as a community. It really struck home for me when we had the Shabbat dinner for gay and lesbian marriage.”
Family Mitzvah Days
Organized by Hebrew Senior Life, the "Mitzvah Day" program is an opportunity to meet and visit with local Jewish seniors and to bring them some holiday cheer and treats. Volunteer families meet at the end of Shule (Sunday School) and then head out to local senior housing sites where they spend about an hour visiting with the residents. The “treats” are provided by Hebrew Senior Life. Mitzvah Days are a fun and rewarding experience for everyone.
