Mitzvah Day - May 20, 2012


Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to volunteer last Sunday for Mitzvah Day!  We had a wonderful day of community service thanks to all of you!  You reached and helped people in need all over the greater Cleveland community and beyond—that was a real mitzvah!  Whether you volunteered for a clean-up/gardening project, helped with a hunger project,  reached out to senior adults, donated blood, wrote cards and letters to U.S. and Israeli soldiers, reached out to families and children, baked cookies to thank our police and fire departments, or helped with any of the other numerous projects, we thank you for making Mitzvah Day such a big success! We can proudly say that close to 400 people of all ages participated in Mitzvah Day 2012! Park Synagogue Mitzvah Day Committee
