Activities From Mitzvah Day 2021

All activity stations will be outdoors. All ages are invited to attend. Everyone 12 and older must be fully vaccinated. Masks must be worn at all times.

 

 

Blood Drive

We're joining forces with Cedars-Sinai and Shomrei Torah for our Mitzvah Day blood drive, November 7th, 8:30am - 2:30pm. You may leave your child to participate in an activity station while you give blood. Supervision is provided by adult and teen volunteers. 


Bracelet Making for Save a Child's Heart

SAVE A CHILD'S HEART saves the lives of critically ill children suffering from heart disease in countries where access to pediatric heart care is limited or nonexistent. Through bringing children to Israel for medical care, performing missions abroad, and training medical personnel, they are bringing hope to families, communities, and countries.  


Card Decorating and Note Writing for Community of Caring

Temple Aliyah’s Community of Caring is committed to offering support and caring to our congregants and their loved ones. Our staff and volunteer teams reach out to those in the Aliyah family who are in need of support and to those celebrating happy occasions as well.
