A weekly e-newsletter from JFS of Middlesex County
JFS is a non-profit social services agency serving all members of the community from all backgrounds. Your generous support enables us to provide crucial programs for those in need.
Mitzvah Day at B'nai Tikvah
At JFS, we believe that the spirit of volunteerism is the very fabric that holds communities together. This week we are highlighting Laura Waksman (right) and B’nai Tikvah’s Social Action Committee for organizing a Mitzvah Day for the community.

On June 12, the Congregation of B'nai Tikvah, came together to paint plant pots for JFS seniors, make blankets, pack snack packs and write letters to Israeli soldiers. Inspired by the annual Mitzvah Day held across the United Kingdom, she believes that "If they can do it in a whole country we can start small and do it in our space". Already a long time advocate for JFS Middlesex and a volunteer for our Kosher Meals on Wheels Program, Laura and the congregants at B'nai Tikvah have been great neighbors--nurturing connections and supporting service projects that help uplift the spirit of individuals across all communities.
We want to thank Laura and B'nai Tikvah for inviting us to their Mitzvah Day and for donating 50 potted plants for seniors in JFS programs.
