9 AM - 1 PM
Join us for Mitzvah Day, an annual event at CBI that honors the spirit of both tikkum olam and tzedakah. We guarantee you will: work on a project that tangibly helps others; meet and connect with other members of CBI; and get the opportunity to be seen in the ever-stylish and very recognizable CBI bright blue Mitzvah shirt.
We’ll all meet at the Temple at 9:00 AM for a delicious breakfast prepared by our Sisterhood chefs, followed by a brief social justice program. We will then head off to our projects, either at the synagogue or off site.
This is a congregation-wide event. It is also a religious school day with parent participation – no drop offs please. Though teachers will be assigned to various projects, we encourage you to sign up for the project(s) that works best for you and your family.
MITZVAH DAY PROJECTS
Volunteer for a variety of projects – clean our cemetery, sort clothing for Friends of Seasonal & Service Workers, make brunch for our neighbors at NW Tower, stock food at Sunshine Pantry, just to name a few.
