Welcome To Temple Beth El!
Since the B’nei Mitzvah Service is the beginning of a child’s acceptance of adult responsibilities in Judaism, it is appropriate for our students to begin fulfilling some of the responsibilities of adulthood. Designing and participating in mitzvah project is a great way for the B’nei Mitzvah student to help contribute to tikkun olam – repairing the world through acts of goodness and loving kindness.
“Despatch Garden” East Rochester, Eyer Park
Raena built raised beds, helped put up fence, shoveled the dirt to create flower/(possible vegetable garden) beds; helped to create a seed library (reused a doll cabinet) where people can take seeds to plant. Although she has completed this project, she is committed to continue her work in garden in this spring. She also received a Citation from a member of NYS Assembly. Mazel Tov, Raena!
