As is now tradition, the JLC office took part in this year’s Mitzvah Day celebrations. Mitzvah day is a celebration of what we can do when we, collectively, give up some time for the common good. Bringing people together to engage with the issues that affect us today; hunger, homelessness, isolation, our environment, and facing them head on helps us to engage as Jewish citizens and build a more resilient Jewish community. The initiative is also beneficial for local communities as Jewish people work alongside members of several different and are able to get to know each other.
As an office, we collected food and delivered it to a nearby food bank that then delivers the food to the people who really need it. We are delighted to take part in this initiative and urge everyone to get involved in next years.
