A very successful Mitzvah Day!

A very successful Mitzvah Day! A big thank you to Erwin Burtnick, Stephen Mintz and R. David Edwards (of VA Maryland)!

In partnership with B’nai Israel Congregation, Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America, the Baltimore VA Medical Center and Jewish Volunteer Connection, the Jewish Museum of Maryland hosted a great Mitzvah Day event! We gathered donations and with the help of enthusiastic volunteers created care packages for veterans, which were then delivered to the Baltimore VA Medical Center.
