Mitzvah Day

Mitzvah Day is an important national and international social action event and SAMS actively participates in it. Each year SAMS runs a number of projects, with something for everyone in the community to get involved in while performing a mitzvah (good deed) and having fun.

In 2019 during the Mitzvah Day 10th Aniversary Awards Ceremony our very own Nick Grant won a special achievement award for his role in ensuring that SAMS is at the forefront of this important and ongoing initiative, watch the video below:

 Our 2018 projects included:

  • SAMS Cheder decorating cakes for women and children at a local women’s refuge
  • A collection for a local foodbank.
  • SAMS Youth sorting food at the local foodbank
  • Knitting hats and scarves for the homeless
  • A Green interfaith project of clearing the local cemetery
  • Cooking an evening meal for the homeless
  • SAMS Tots, young members and SAMS Singers entertaining the elderly at a residential home
