PSJC Shaarei Mitzvah Tzedakah Fair
Sunday, November 24th, 2019
Programming begins at 9:30AM, fair runs from 11:00AM - 11:45AM


The PSJC Annual Tzedakah Fair happens each February as part of a morning of learning about Tzedek (justice) and Tzedakah. Our 6th grade Shaarei Mitzvah, bnai mitzvah cohort, students each choose an organization to research and raise money for. PSJC community members of all ages and their friends bring their tzedakah boxes from home and contribute to a wide range of causes. Read below for organizations supported in past years.

Organizations selected for the 2019 fair include the following.
