(PHOENIX – June 8, 2018) – Community organizations seeking volunteers will now have a one-stop ‘hub’ thanks to the partnership between Jewish Family & Children’s Service and the Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix.  Called the Mitzvah Hub, this online portal will house information on a wide variety of community organizations seeking volunteers.

This joint effort, formerly known as the Jewish Community Mitzvah Project Booklet, will include projects that benefit organizations in the Jewish community that raise awareness and importance of supporting Jewish needs both locally and around the world as well as Jewish organizations, irrespective of the religion of their beneficiaries, which are consistent with Jewish values.

“We are excited to launch the revitalized Mitzvah Hub, offering opportunities for Jewish organizations in our community to find volunteers willing to help,” said Jody Goldman, volunteer coordinator at Jewish Family & Children’s Service.  “We’re accepting submissions now for projects and are expecting to launch the site in the fall.”

To submit your organization and community projects, please complete Mitzvah Hub submission form at https://www.jfcsaz.org/volunteer/.

Once launched in the fall, the Mitzvah Hub will be a valuable resource for anyone wishing to do community service projects as an individual, family or group as well as students seeking volunteer opportunities in the Jewish community in order to fulfill school service hours and/or Bar/Bat Mitzvah requirements.
