Activities at Temple Beth El:

Birthday Box
Create the best gift for a needy child.  Boxes contain all the materials to have an amazing birthday celebration. 

Cooking for Neighbors Link at TBE
Cook a warm lunch for Neighbors Link, the Mount Kisco based organization whose mission is to strengthen the community by actively enhancing the healthy integration of recent Latino immigrants.

No-Sew Shawl Preparation
We will be making shawls for the Caregiver Center at Westchester Medical Center.  Family members staying overnight with patients are given shawls to stay warm in the hospital.  We will be preparing the material, then making the shawls by cutting and knotting the fabric.

Car Wash
Join our teens adn youth group, BESTY, as we create the TBE car wash in our temple parking lot.  For safety reasons, all car washers must be over age 13.  On Mitzvah Day, drive your car through to give it a little sparkle!

Treats for Shelter Pets
Help make cat toys and dog treats for animals of the SPCA shelter in Briarcliff.

The Pajama Project
Bring a new pair of pajamas and/or new book.  We’ll wrap the gifts and make cards and bookmarks as part of a national Pajama Project for disadvantaged children. 

Cottage School Snack Bags
Residents at the JCCA Cottage School will be participating in a Autism Speaks walk.  We will be assembling healthy snack bags to give out to the resident/walkers at the finish line.

UJA Treat Bags
Cheer up the day of a resident of a UJA facility by preparing edible treats and packaging them.

Treats for Ronald McDonald House Guests
House guests often don't have time or access to a healthy treat and often many siblings of sick children are staying there.  We will assemble these needed treat bags.

Blood Drive
Working with the New York Blood Center, donate anytime between 8:00 am - 12:00 pm on Mitzvah Day. Click here to sign up for appointments (walk ins also welcome.)
