In the spirit of President Obama’s United We Serve campaign, the Washington, DC Jewish Community Center has put out a special day geared towards young, Jewish professionals—MITZVAHstock!

Taking place on Sunday, September 13, participants have the chance to volunteer at one of two locales—cleaning the grounds of the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens or helping to renovate an apartment building in Columbia Heights for residents with HIV/AIDS.

Following a morning of service will be a 3 pm happy hour at Bar Louie, a perfect way to treat yourself for a job well done.

Local organizations are also pulling their weight together—co-sponsoring MITZVAHstock with DCJCC are organizations such as ACCESS DC, B’nai B’rith International, Birthright Israel NEXT, GesherCity DC, Moishe House of Silver Spring, NextGen, Sixth & I, the Avodah/AJWS partnership, Yachad and YP@AI.

Walk-ins won’t be accepted, so RSVP by September 8 for a spot! Check out the Facebook page for more information.
