As we mark the tenth anniversary of the horrific acts of September 11, 2001, Repair the World remembers those who perished and urges our community—and people of all backgrounds—to unite and re-commit itself to service to address issues that people in our country face everyday.
To commemorate the anniversary, this year, President Barack Obama has established September 11 as a Day of Service and Remembrance, encouraging the nation to honor the victims of the attacks – as well as the sacrifices of our emergency first responders and the men and women in uniform serving abroad – with an act of service or charity.
Please join us in honoring those who were lost, thanking those who gave of themselves, and, in keeping with the Jewish values of justice and caring, by continuing to pay tribute by serving on 9/11 and everyday.
