Mitzvah Kids aims to provide fun, engaging and enriching opportunities for children between the ages of 4 and 8 to give back to their community. The goal is to Make Kids Into Mensches by allowing "giving back" to become a regular part of these children's lives.

We will be gathering at the JCC on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 at 1:00 for this exciting, inaugural activity. There will be music, refreshments, and much mitzvah-making. (If you do plan to attend, please bring an old t-shirt that your child can make into his or her own mitzvah cape!)
