With Mitzvah Day 2013 coming up soon, find out more about what happens across the UK.
"Every year on Mitzvah Day an astounding 25,000+ people say 'yes' to social action and giving, spreading goodness, repairing the broken and quite simply, making this world a better place. Now a well-anticipated focal point in British Jewry's annual calendar, Mitzvah Day galvanises participants – regardless of age, faith, affiliation, gender or socio-economic position – to donate their time and energy to a diverse range of vital causes that make a tangible difference to those in need around the world. We have seen that genuine community inclusion occurs when everyone, regardless of capability, participates side-by-side. Mitzvah Day’s hundreds of social action initiatives are underpinned by our mission to reduce hardship and poverty, care better for our environment and give a little joy. We bring these Jewish values alive by creating opportunities and partnerships that put them to work. It's all about imaginative hands-on projects that play a pivotal part in building stronger communities, creating durable links between different faiths and charities, both Jewish and not, and cultivating valuable relationships with other faith groups."
