Mitzvah Day UK comes to ALEH Jerusalem
Every year in November, children and young adults across the United Kingdom participated in “Mitzvah Day,” giving of their time – rather than their money – to make a difference in their communities. For the first time in Mitzvah Day history, the social action project extended well beyond the borders of the UK…to ALEH’s residential facility in Jerusalem! ALEH was lucky enough to receive a visit from a group of students from FZY, the oldest Zionist youth movement in the UK, who are spending their gap year in Israel. These wonderful young adults spent the afternoon running activities for our amazing ALEH residents and making them smile from ear to ear. From where we stand, Mitzvah Day was a stunning success!
