Beginning at 10 a.m. on April 29, Temple Sinai of Glendale will hold its annual Mitzvah (Good Deed) Day. April 29 is the date Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has declared as Big Sunday, a city-wide day of volunteerism.
Hundreds of volunteer opportunities will be taking place throughout the Los Angeles area. Last year, 32,000 people came out to lend a hand to help out 250 charitable organizations.
Social Action, or Tikkun Olam, has always been part of Judaism.
The Foothill community is invited to join the Temple Sinai congregation — from its youngest members to its oldest — as they participate in this day of volunteerism.
On-site, there will be cookie baking for local shelters, lunch preparation for PATH Achieve Glendale, decoration of pot holders to be sent to those in refugee camps near Darfur, fundraising for solar cookers to be sent to Darfur, a lemonade stand to benefit charities and more. Off-site opportunities will be available as well — call for more information.
All are welcome; just come ready to pitch in.
Temple Sinai of Glendale is at 1212 N. Pacific Ave., three blocks north of Glenoaks Boulevard. For more information, call 246-8101.
