Jewish Baltimore Gives Back


Once again, Baltimore’s Jewish community turned out in large — and enthusiastic — numbers on Dec. 25 for Mitzvah Day, taking part in a variety of volunteer activities to help the less fortunate. At the Weinberg Park Heights JCC, 1,500 winter care packages, which included fleece blankets and sandwiches, were assembled for the homeless. At the Rosenbloom Owings Mills JCC, attendees helped with homemade hand-warmers and by collecting pajamas. Repair the World: Baltimore, in partnership with Jewish Volunteer Connection, the organization that sprearheaded Mitzvah Day, got in on the action by filling shoeboxes with wintertime essentials. Drivers from all of the event centers then delivered the mitzvah goods to those who needed it most.
