Mitzvah Day

Mitzvah Day 2019  — It's for Everyone!

Sunday, April 28
9:00am–12:00noon

Help make a positive impact in Santa Cruz County by working together with other Temple members.

Be sure to arrive at 9:00am and wear your Mitzvah Day t-shirt if you have one. This annual temple-wide event brings together Temple School students, families, and individuals from seniors to youth groupers and preschoolers!

We’ll gather at the temple at 9:00am where you will meet your teammates, get your t-shirt, enjoy a light nosh, and make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the homeless. In addition, please sign postcards to your legislators about climate change actions with the TBE Green Team before going off to one of the projects listed below.

If you are interested in becoming a team captain, or if you have any questions, please contact Sarah at sclarkson@tbeaptos.org or 479-3444 ext. 218. We look forward to doing Mitzvot together!

Thank you to this year’s Mitzvah Day sponsors: Staff of Life, TBE Board of Directors, North Coast Orthodontics, “Spread the Aloha” and Branding Out.
