29th annual lori sklar mitzvah day at Congregation B’nai Israel

Helping make a difference! SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2022

In keeping with Judaism’s teachings of Tikkun Olam, this is a day for volunteers of all ages to come together, lending their time, energy and compassion to work on projects that improve the lives of those in need.

This year, we had off-campus and at-home activities as well as collections. Donations can also be made to the Kantor Family Center for Justice

Our opening ceremony featuring CBI President Sharon Landau, CBI Executive Director Steve Allen, CBI Clergy, Palm Beach Mayor Robert Weinroth and Boca Raton Mayor Scott Singer took place virtually at 9:30am.

Together, CBI’s members and families were able to with work various local charities to provide:

  • Hundreds of toiletries and personal care items for families transitioning out of homelessness through Family Promise
  • Over 500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for Wayne Barton Study Center and CBI’s Little Free Pantries at Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church
  • Dozens of home-baked cookies and handmade cards for our local first responders
  • More than 40 handmade blankets for local hospital patients and homeless members of our community
  • Dozens of homemade birthday boxes including cake mixes, candles, balloons and cards for SOS Children’s Village, Best Food Forward and JAFCO Children’s Village
  • Multiple bins of pet supplies for the Tri-County Humane Society
  • Over 750 lbs. of canned and ready-to-eat non-perishable food for the Little Free Pantries at Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church
  • Hundreds of lbs. of produce to local food kitchens through gleaning
  • Plus, nearly one cubic yard of plastics and other debris were collected from Red Reef Park
