Need something to feel good about? Next month, the 92Y in New York City is hosting a Hands-On Mitzvah Day, and everyone is invited to join in on the fun. The day will be filled with hands-on projects to benefit those in need and promote the spirit of tikkun olam, repairing the world.
Projects include writing and creating holiday cards for soldiers, decorating flower pots for the elderly, preparing activity kits for children with life-threatening illnesses, collecting and sorting new and gently used books for children in underserved schools and for children in hospitals, toiletries for women in need and pet supplies for animals in shelters. There’s a suggested donation of $20 per family.

And remember, Kveller has been doing a little tikkun olam along with PJ Library with our tzedakah campaign that will bring $5000 to a deserving non-profit. Learn more and nominate your favorite organization here.
