Mitzvah Day 2014

Mitzvah Day 2014 takes place this Sunday, 16 November.

Mitzvah Day was founded by Board Senior Vice President Laura Marks in 2005 (originally with the JCC for London) and is the Jewish led global annual day of social action where thousands upon thousands of people from all faiths and backgrounds donate time, not money. Supported by political and religious figures such as the Prime Minister David Cameron, Tony Blair and the Archbishop of Canterbury, it focuses on the core belief that as Jews we must give back.

This year, the Board will be supporting Mitzvah Day in a variety of ways, through its own collections at both staff and deputy level and we are encouraging everyone to get involved in whatever way they can. For more information on how you can contribute to collections and events being held by communities close to you, please visit the ‘registered projects’ page on the Mitzvah Day website.

For those of you attending our plenary on Sunday, click here to see our flyer for more information on how you can get involved.
