Act Now

Volunteering, done right, moves us toward racial justice and is an opportunity to build relationships and share stories. Each year, during Passover, we share the story of our ancestors’ journey from slavery to liberation. Join us as we volunteer in solidarity with directly impacted communities and hear their stories.

Repair With Us

Washington Hebrew Congregation's Mitzvah Day on April 30, 2017, represents the culmination of our yearlong focus on community service and our long-standing commitment to helping the homeless, sick, hungry, and underprivileged in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. community.

On Mitzvah Day, our volunteers, young and old working together, lend their time, energy, and compassion to social service agencies working to improve the lives of people in need. In keeping with Judaism's teachings of tikkun olam, to repair the world, Mitzvah Day inspires participants to pursue justice through social activism.

Washington Hebrew Congregation initiated Mitzvah Day in 1991 under the leadership of Rabbi M. Bruce Lustig and a devoted group of lay leaders who wanted to make a difference in the greater Washington, D.C. community. In the years since its inception, Mitzvah Day has evolved into one of the Congregation's largest annual undertakings and serves as a national model, adopted by synagogues around the world.
