Mitzvah Corps

ECC Mitzvah Corps, Family Mitzvah Corps, and Monthly Mitzvah Corps

If, however, there is a needy person among you…do not harden your heart and shut your hand against your needy kin.  Rather you must open your hand and lend whatever is sufficient to meet the need.
Deuteronomy 15:7-8 (translation from The Torah, A Modern Commentary)

WRT is committed to helping others in need.  From a child’s first entry into the community as a student at the Early Childhood Center through the Jewish Learning Lab and all stages of WRT life, our community is committed to helping others through its many mitzvah corps opportunities.

ECC Mitzvah Corps

WRT is committed to teaching even our youngest children that they can assist in making the world a better place.  With that in mind, the WRT Early Childhood Center (ECC) Mitzvah Corps organizes programming that ECC children, and their families, can learn from and contribute to, with the goal of teaching the next generation the Jewish values of tzedakah (charitable giving) and tikkun olam (repairing the world).

Family Mitzvah Corps

Family Mitzvah Corps is a community of families engaging in hands-on social action work together.  Through monthly community service opportunities, parents and children have the opportunity to come together to interact with the broader world.  Learn more… 

Monthly Mitzvah Corps

We all find ourselves in need of support sometime and you don’t need to know the people you are helping in order to make a difference in their lives.  With this in mind, each month, Monthly Mitzvah collects new and gently used items of need for individuals and groups in Westchester County.  Over the years, our community’s contributions have supported individuals, families, and pets!  Please open your heart – and your closets – to see what you might be able to donate.  Learn more…
