About Mitzvah Day

Mitzvah Day is a long-standing tradition in Pittsburgh where the Jewish community comes together to provide services to different organizations throughout the entire community.

Next year’s Mitzvah Day celebration will be taking place over 2 days, with projects on both Monday, December 24th and Tuesday, December 25th! This will be our 18th annual Mitzvah Day, named for the Hebrew word mitzvah, referring to “good deeds” or “acts of loving kindness.” The event is coordinated by the Jewish Federation Volunteer Center, which provides a network of meaningful opportunities to connect volunteers with organizations and people in need. Bring your family and friends to join in doing a mitzvah together!
