About Mitzvah Day Canada
Save the Date! November 17, 2013
Mitzvah Day International is a Jewish led day of social action. In 2012, over 25,000 children, young adults and adults in 18 countries, participated in hands on projects, without fundraising, to support charities, numerous local initiatives and to build stronger community relations.
Mitzvah Day is based on the Jewish values of tikkun olam (repairing the world), tzedek (righteousness) and gemilut chassadim (acts of lovingkindness).
Unlike many other countries, Canada to date, has not seen fit to participate in Mitzvah Day International. But, this is about to change.
Mitzvah Day Canada, a Partner of Mitzvah Day International and recently established by Alan Simons, is a not-for-profit and non commercial educational community-based project.
Our mission is to reduce hardship and poverty, to help our environment and to bring a little joy – hands on –no fundraising. It is a way for all Canadians to make their mark, regardless of affiliation, religion, wealth, age, sex or nationality.
Although early days yet – Mitzvah Day International doesn’t take place until November 17, 2013 – plans are now well underway in Canada to encourage social action committees, corporations and individuals of all faiths, to participate in this event.
