Good Deeds Day

Sunday, April 29, 1pm–3pm
Location: Gesher Jewish Day School, 4800 Mattie Moore Court, Fairfax
The Jewish community of Greater Washington will join Israel and other countries from around the globe for a day of service. Established in Israel in 2007, Good Deeds Day celebrates the value and importance of giving back to the community. Last year, in our area alone, we had more than 8,500 volunteers who took part in this initiative. This day offers a variety of hands-on volunteer projects that will make an impact throughout the community. There will be projects for even the youngest members of our community!

The J is proud to partner with Gesher Jewish Day School and several local synagogues to provide a variety of volunteer opportunities for all ages at Gesher Jewish Day School. To register as a volunteer, please visit
