Mitzvah Day is a wonderful opportunity for the Greensboro Jewish community to participate in the holy task of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world. Mitzvah Day is a concerted effort, on a single day, to bring the entire community together to spend one day volunteering with social justice projects/activities in the community. Volunteers choose from a variety of projects that cater to diverse interests, capabilities, and ages. A successful Mitzvah Day strengthens the community’s commitment to social action and its identity as a caring community.
By joining together to perform acts of social responsibility and kindness on Mitzvah Day, we of the Greensboro Jewish Community fulfill our shared Jewish obligation of Tikkun Olam, of “repairing the world.” We capitalize on the vibrancy and vitality of our community to aid those in need, regardless of religion, race, or creed. In doing so, we honor our neighbors, ourselves, our Tradition, and G-d.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for GSO Mitzvah Day 2023!
