Mitzvah day at Temple Israel

On Dec. 25, 2014, members of Temple Israel gathered for their second annual mitzvah day. In-house projects were started and finished as well as community projects, and it all ended with dinner prepared by congregant Julia Fineberg.

The youth lounge was moved and refurbished. Children made blankets for Project Linus, letters were written to both U.S. soldiers and those serving in the IDF, the children baked brownies and cookies for first responders, and clothes/toiletries were collected for Pathways to Care and SafeHouse of Seminole.

After the movie "Gentlemen's Agreement" was shown, an authentic Chinese dinner was served to the congregation.
