Days of Service
Mitzvah Miami is our annual high school community service project. Offering the chance for teens to plan and implement a new project each spring. Past projects have included: organizing a Senior Prom for the Senior Citizens at the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center, cleaning up Miami's beaches, restoring the Jewish graves at a Miami cemetery, and participating in a Reuse, Rethink, Recycle program. All programs are hands-on and include a featured speaker in our community.
J-Serve, our annual volunteer day for youth and teens, gives young adults the opportunity to participate in meaningful projects in our community. In partnership with BBYO and Mitzvah Miami, teens have planted an organic garden and helped clean up the graves in the Jewish section of a Miami cemetery.
December 25 Jewish Community Volunteer Day
The December 25 Jewish Community Volunteer Day is a new annual tradition. With over a dozen projects throughout Miami-Dade, there is one to fit your needs. Projects range from beautifying our community to visiting the sick and feeding the homeless.
Everything but the Turkey
At Everything but the Turkey, our pre-Thanksgiving volunteer program, participants put on their chef hats as they slice, dice, mix and chop ingredients for the accompaniments of the holiday meal. Jewish families in need and local homeless shelters receive over 1,800 servings of food as a result of this outstanding program.
Martin Luther King National Day of Service
Martin Luther King National Day of Service is a day of service and learning for families. In the past, participants have harvested, planted and helped to maintain Roots in the City, an organic garden feeding the homeless in Miami’s historic Overtown District.
Good Deeds Day
Good Deeds Day is an annual celebration of good deeds. All over the world, hundreds of thousands choose to volunteer and help others, putting into practice the simple idea that every single person can do something good, be it large or small, to improve the lives of others and positively change the world. The JVC plans and organizes volunteer opportunities for the community to participate in this day.
