Mitzvah Day 2019

Join us for Mitzvah Day, an annual event at CBI that honors the spirit of both tikkun olam and tzedakah. We guarantee you will:

  • Work on a project that tangibly helps people.
  • Meet and connect with other members of CBI.
  • Get charged up for the day with a delicious breakfast made by our Sisterhood chefs.
  • Get the opportunity to be seen in the ever-stylish and recognizable CBI Mitzvah shirt.

The morning will begin at CBI. If your project is off-campus, the location is noted below and participants will meet there after breakfast.

Projects are suitable for all ages unless otherwise noted. Also note that anyone in 5th grade or below must be accompanied by a parent or adult. One adult can be in charge of several kids. 

Date: 04/28/2019 (Sun.)

Time: 9:00am - 1:00pm PDT
