Interfaith Mitzvah Day

1:30PM - 4:30PM  

The Reading area Jewish, Christian and Muslim communities will be
joining together for an interfaith day of service. Hosted at Alvernia
University we will be working together to support the Berks Coalition
to End Homelessness (BCEH). We will be wrapping donated items in
preparation for the People First event being held at Queen City Diner on
November 10. The People First event invites the homeless to QCD for
a free meal and they also receive donated items. BCEH will also be on
hand during our interfaith mitzvah day to share stories with the group. we
will have music, snacks and a discussion on the act of a “mitzvah” and its
importance to all religious groups. All high school age students and adults
are welcome to join us.
