Mitzvah Day is the UK’s largest faith-led day of social action.
Each year, in November, over 40,000 people around the world, come together to give our time, not money, to make a difference to the community around us. Mitzvah Day introduces people to social action, to their neighbours and to local charities, setting up projects, which address real needs.
Jewish-led, we bring together people of all ages, faiths and backgrounds, to volunteer side-by-side, building longstanding, genuine relationships.
Social Action projects make a vital difference to the world around us and can include a wide variety of activities.
Mitzvah Day projects offer a range of art and crafts activities such as making dog toys for animal rescue centres, eco-projects such as tree planting and litter picks, friendship projects such as visiting care homes, collection projects such as food collections for local food banks, clothing collections, stationery collections, appreciation projects such as writing letters to hospital workers, support staff, fire service workers etc. cooking projects to make food to be donated to night shelters and refuge centres, upcycling projects such as making tote bags out of t-shirts, and care projects such as making and distributing essential supplies to rough sleepers.
Join us this year as we come together on Sunday 21st November to make a difference.
