Mitzvah Day

Mitzvah Day 2018  
It's for Everyone!

Sunday, April 22, 2018, 9:00 AM-12:00 Noon

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

Remember to arrive at 9:00 AM 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 9:00 AM where you will meet your teammates, get your t-shirt, enjoy a delicious nosh of muffins baked by Simcha preschoolers and make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for the homeless. If you have extra packages of diapers or packages of wipes, we are collecting this year for the Walnut Avenue Women’s Center and Siena House.
     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!
