    Hi Everyone,

    MITZVAH DAY 365 is back on Sunday 22 November from 10am. Do something meaningful, including: 

    - Support Sinai's Mitzvah Day Interfaith Collectathon & Knitathon at The Zone 

    - Donate items to a variety of worthwhile causes

    - Help with the Community Clean-up Event in the Harehills area, supporting the 'Keep Harehills Tidy' 

    - Befriend and or collect food items    


    Mitzvah Day is a catalyst in building local communities to take part in collective, hands-on social action projects which make a real difference to local issues regardless of age, faith, affiliation, gender or socio-economic position.


    Donate time and energy to a diverse range of causes that make a tangible difference to those in need around the world. We have seen that genuine community inclusion occurs when everyone, regardless of capability, participates side-by-side.
