National Volunteer Week


April 18th-24th is National Volunteer Week. If you’re not already volunteering, now is the time to get moving! Find local volunteer opportunities through Harvest to Harvest here.

Birthright Israel NEXT Los Angeles recently started a weekly volunteer opportunity with Tomchei Shabbos. Tomchei Shabbos was founded in 1977, and has been providing essential Shabbat food packages to thousands of needy Jewish families in Los Angeles.

Every week, volunteers fill Tomchei’s warehouses to package food boxes with eggs, milk, fruits, vegetables, challah, grape juice, chicken and other essentials to ensure that families can have a special Shabbat in their home. Once the boxes are packaged, they are delivered to the receipients by dedicated volunteers.

Please join us every Thursday at 6 p.m. (through June 24) to take part in this wonderful mitzvah.
