What is Mitzvah Day?
Mitzvah Day is a Jewish led day of social action. On various Mitzvah Days, around the world, thousands of people take part in hands on projects, without fundraising, to support charities and to build stronger communities. Our mission is to reduce hardship and poverty, to help our environment and to bring a little joy – hands on – no fundraising. It is a way for all of us to make our mark regardless of our affiliation, wealth, age, sex or nationality. Mitzvah Day is based on the Jewish values of tikkun olam (repairing the world), tzedek (righteousness) and gemilut chassadim (acts of loving-kindness).
