We will be having hands-on activities on Mitzvah Day for people of all ages which will include:

  • Making pet toys to be donated to local animal shelters.
  • Sorting and packing baby clothing to be sent to Israel.
  • Making memory books for Alzheimer patients.
  • Making “Smile Kits” containing oral hygiene supplies for those in need.*
  • Wrapping new scarves, gloves and hats to be given as holiday gifts to local Jewish agencies and to the homeless
  • Wrapping puzzles as holiday gifts for those struggling with emotional, psychiatric and addiction issues.

PLEASE, let us know if you are interested in meeting over at Federation and participating in one of these activities. It would be great if a group of us could do this together.  Just email

* We are collecting items for “Smile Kits.”  There is a collection box in the TBE lobby for donations of NEW toothbrushes, toothpaste and dental floss. All three items together make one kit. Please be as generous as you are able.
