HOBOKEN -- The United Synagogue of Hoboken is holding its annual Mitzvah Day community-service project on Sunday, Sept. 9. The event offers an opportunity to give back to the community and participate in service projects that people could be inclined to continue to work on throughout the year.
Members of the synagogue community and the general public are strongly encouraged to sign up for an activity for a day of fun, camaraderie and fulfilling work that will have a lasting impact. Activities this year include work for the Hoboken Shelter and for the Emergency Food Pantry, a visit to senior citizens, a
story-time and art project for children, "Coupons for Troops," a nutrition and health activity fair at the Hoboken Housing Authority, a "Bigger and Better" social-action project for teens, a bone-marrow drive, a cemetery clean-up and several other options.
The day will culminate in the synagogue's annual "Welcome Back Barbecue." People interested in participating should sign up as soon as possible.
