Mitzvah Day

Mitzvah Day Weekend is June 1-2, 2024


Mitzvah Day brings together members of area congregations for caring in the community.

Volunteers prepare hundreds of meals for the hungry, sort clothes for the homeless, brighten the days of children in need, visit seniors in nursing homes, provide entertainment to children and teens, paint or spruce up an agency working to serve underprivileged individuals, or clean up outdoor parks that are enjoyed by many in the community — all in just one weekend.

In keeping with Judaism’s teachings of tikkun olam, to repair the world, Mitzvah Day, managed by Temple Israel, strives to inspire its participants to pursue social justice through social activism. Mitzvah Day was brought to Temple Israel in 2002 and has since been extended to more than 15 greater-Akron area congregations over 2 days.
