100 Mitzvot

Help us reach 100 Mitzvahs during the 100th anniversary year. How will YOU get involved? What will YOU do?

 SIGN UP for Mitzvot Project(s)

Let Beth El give you some fun and rewarding activities to engage in good deeds (mitzvot) and repair the world (Tikkun Olam), at the shul and at outside organizations. Just in Pittsburgh alone, there is a lot of need and many organizations desperately in need of volunteers to help others.

Upcoming Social Action Programs

Watch for more monthly programs on specific dates and consider incorporating one of the ideas below into an existing program or start a small project/outing.

Submit your Completed Mitzvah

Each date you perform a mitzvah, whether by yourself or part of a group, is considered another Mitzvah!  When you/your team has completed your mitzvah, please complete the Submit Your Mitzvah form to help us reach (and hopefully exceed!) 100 mitzvahs during this 100th anniversary year!
