Annual Mitzvah Day

Mitzvah Day

Mitzvah Day is a special day, a Sunday in the spring, for our entire congregation to perform mitzvahs throughout the community.

In years past, teams of congregants have gone to nursing homes, hospitals, youth services, the library, animal rescue organizations, Ronald McDonald house, and within Temple Avodah itself,  to perform mitzvahs that are needed. We do everything from painting walls, book collection, baking, pet adoption, to serving meals to gathering non-perishable food to singing songs and reading to others.

Paul Engel is the current coordinator for this very special multi-faceted day of giving at Temple Avodah.

Participants enjoy this day of giving back and helping others. All are welcome to attend.

Mitzvah Day is always filled with giving back. Photos include: Volunteers who baked at the RonaldMcDonald House, Adult sing along at Oceanside Cares Center, Gardening at the Temple Avodah, Junior and Teen choirs at Oceanside Cares Center, Adult Choir sings at the Belair Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and Food Drive at Temple Avodah. Our Temple Avodah congregants enjoyed the day filled with these and other events, and, over 150 bags of food was collected and donated to the Long Beach Inn. If you are interested in helping plan and participate in our Mitzvah Day for next year, it is already underway.  Contact our Social Action Committee/ Mitzvah Day Committee which meets monthly.  Everyone is welcome to participate!
