Mitzvah Day in Akron was created by Temple Israel in 2002. It is a two-day event committed to helping different agencies in our community and collaborating with other faith-based organizations to do this work.

Each year members come together, and in just two days prepare hundreds of meals for the hungry and sort clothes for the homeless, brighten the days of children in need, visit seniors in nursing homes, provide entertainment to children and teens, paint and spruce up agencies working to serve underprivileged individuals, and clean outdoor parks in our community.

Faith has been a collaborating partner with Temple Israel for several years in Mitzvah Days.
