Be a “Chesed Hero” !

Children aged eight and under can help this Mitzvah Day by becoming a ‘Chesed Hero!’

Characters from PJ Library books have a lot to teach us. This Mitzvah Day kids can be like Rosie who wants to save the planet with Tukkun Olam, like Maya who welcomes a new neighbour or like Benny who donated food to those in need. Whether you’d like to do something with your community or get involved from the comfort of your kitchen table, PJ Library invites little hands to get stuck in!

If you are planning a community event and would like a mitzvah-themed book for storytelling with accompanying tried-and-tested activities for children this Mitzvah Day, please contact Sara who will send you everything you need including a personalised poster to be included on your community’s social media pages and newsletter.
