Mitzvah Day


Birmingham J-Soc volunteering at Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Mitzvah Day, November 2017

Guided by Jewish values, Mitzvah Day’s vision is of Jews and non-Jews to come together to build more cohesive neighbourhoods and to strengthen civil society, through social action activities. Mitzvah Day can support and introduce your J-Soc to many social action involvements together with other organisations present in your campus or community. The UJS Guide to Mitzvah Day on Campus can be found here.


Succot Homelessness Awareness


Students at a Homelessness Awareness Lunch and Learn, Leeds J-Soc

Succot is an excellent opportunity to talk about homelessness, through its themes of vulnerability and the idea of tzedaka. This is to start to conversation on what we can do as students on campus through positive social change. 

We're excited to share this resource guide that can be used to shape the campaign on your campuses, from creating a peer-led lunch and learn to talk about the growing issue of homelessness to practical steps you can take to address homelessness in your local area. If you have any queries, please contact Grace.
