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.
