In keeping with Judaism’s teachings of tikkun olam, to repair the world, Mitzvah Day inspires participants to pursue justice through social activism.
In the years since its inception, Mitzvah Day has evolved into one of the Congregation’s largest annual events and serves as a national model, adopted by synagogues around the world.
Thank you to everyone who put on gloves and a mask and helped us celebrate the 30th anniversary of this amazing WHC tradition on Sunday, April 18, 2021. With your help, we donated thousands of sandwiches to those who might be hungry, collected hundreds of care packages for senior citizens, made dozens of warm blankets for kids in foster care, collected dozens of new books for DCPS students, and collected several gently used bikes for those less fortunate.
This commitment to tikkun olam is what the WHC community is all about!
Couldn’t participate in Mitzvah Day’s 30th Anniversary? Donate $30 to the TOV fund to celebrate WHC’s commitment to Tikkum Olam.
