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.

This year’s Mitzvah Day celebration will be taking place over 2 days, with projects on both Sunday, December 24th and Monday, December 25th! This will be our 17th 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!
