Mitzvah Day 2016 - Sunday, February 21st 9:15AM-12:30PM Arnstein Jewish Community Center.
The word "mitzvah" means "good deeds". It also means "commandment" because we are commanded to perform good deeds. Let's help the larger Jewish community help Knoxville. Register in advance for many activities. This is something we can participate in as a congregation, together, as part of Jewish Knoxville. To register, Contact Jesse Feld 865-690-6343 firstname.lastname@example.org (this is from the AJCC calendar).
What is this about? It's about helping the Jewish community help others. Here is a list: caring for families, helping the hungry, healing the sick, protecting the environment, speaking up for advocacy, preserving our heritage, improving the AJCC.
