18 Hours of Mindful Mitzvot
Hineini at Temple Chai


Hineini is giving us a simple way for everyone to give back to our community by giving of yourself for 18 hours. How does it work? It’s easy—find a cause, or multiple causes: work at a PADS shelter, volunteer at a library, read to some children, help out at Temple Chai, volunteer at an animal shelter—the list is endless. Simply pledge to give 18 hours of time individually, with your family or a group of friends.

And P.S. Why stop at 18? Questions? Please contact Kitty Loewy at Hineini@templechai.org.
