Acts of Kindness

In Judaism, we’re taught that “we are all responsible for one another.” This year, the J is taking that teaching to heart—and we want you to join us.

From Passover to Sukkot, we’re providing weekly suggestions of acts of kindness you can perform to foster a sense of caring, generosity, and connection for yourself and your community. The activities are easy and accessible ways for your whole family to spread joy and happiness to those around you.

Stop by the Welcome Desk at the J to pick up a set of cards. As you work your way through, you can join our Facebook group to spread the kindness a little farther. 

We all benefit from more compassion and goodness in our lives, so let’s work together to bring a little more light into the world—one act of kindness at a time.
