More than 150 Religious School students and 35 CBS members participated in Mitzvah Day on Sunday, November 12th to help the local community by making cancer wellness bags, Thanksgiving centerpieces and placemats, sandwiches for the local food pantry, cards and book marks for patients at Lurie's Children's Hospital, dog toys for animal shelters and more! The students also made tzedakah cans of their own to take home and bring back on Good Deeds Day, April 15, 2018, when they will select a charity to donate the money they have collected. Congregant Jill Olefsky, with the help of many other volunteers, planned the event.
