Mitzvah Mensches

Become a Mitzvah Mensch at The Selfhelp Home!

Let the adventure begin!

Volunteer with us for your Mitzvah Project!
Use your talent to contribute to the joy of our senior residents in ways that enhance
the lives of both you and those in our community.

Ready to make a difference and have some fun along the way?

It’s time to become a Mitzvah Mensch and take charge of your own project.
Whether you’re a talented artist, a fundraising whiz, a storytelling maestro, or just someone with a passion
waiting to be unleashed, this is your chance to shine and leave a positive mark on the world!
Our program has earned 2 national awards for community impact, contact us and find out why.
Here are just a few suggestions, we are always open to your creative ideas!

If you play an instrument, sing, dance, or make music videos we’d love to have you engage with our residents and show off your talent!

Craft projects for residents are always appreciated! A few examples: making jewelry for residents, special keepsakes, paintings or holiday themed crafts during Purim, Sukkot or Chanukah – just to name a few! Gather a group together to join you in your project.

Interview a resident that can talk to you about their life experience during the Holocaust. Make a documented video or visual project out of your discussions to help educate others or share the story with your synagogue. What lessons can you learn from their strength and resilience? Selfhelp is home to a number of survivors, availability will depend on our population.

Raise money for our Survivor Fund. The funds go directly to support Holocaust survivors that live at The Selfhelp home. You can run a Go Fund Me event, hold a car wash or bake sale to raise the funds, sell bath bombs…the choice is yours!

Create your own Mitzvah project! Express yourself with your own creativity to create a meaningful project.

Do you enjoy music, playing an instrument, or singing? Put your talents to work and put on a concert for residents. Show your talents, incorporate friends and family as well.
