COME TOGETHER FOR MITZVAH DAY, SUNDAY 21 NOV
Each year, in November, over 40,000 people around the world, come together to give our time, not our money, to make a difference to the community around us. Mitzvah Day introduces people to social action – setting up projects, which address real needs.
Since 2018 Mensch has been The UK’S Mitzvah Day Partner in Southern Africa and in 3 years has developed 54 Mitzvah Day Projects and built new and lasting connections between Beneficiary Partners (NPOs, social projects, shelters, those with less) and Volunteer Partners (Schools, shuls, corporates, friendship groups, families), that continue beyond the November Mitzvah Day Event.

WHY GET INVOLVED
Mitzvah Day allows everyone of all ages, backgrounds and faiths to get involved in
hands-on social action projects that don’t involve money (Tzedaka) and are guided by
the Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World), Gemilut Chasadim (Acts of
Kindness) and Tzedek (Justice).
