CTJ Mitzvah Fair

We want to make it easy for you and your family to share in CTJ Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) efforts . Together with our community partners--including Chemocessories, 1736 Family Crisis Center, Habitat for Humanity, and more -- CTJ will host a variety of community service "stations" that offer participants opportunities to learn, see, and act. Knit for a hospitalized baby, assemble toiletry kits for families in shelters, donate blood at Cedar Sinai bloodmobile, and create accessory sets for women going through chemo. For more information, please contact Brandi.Greenberg@gmail.com.
