Teens: Help Out on BJTI’s Mitzvah Day

Help out those less fortunate who do not have a place to turn to on this holiday. Join us as we partner with Bridge House – Serving Boulder’s Homeless & Working Poor. We will meet at the Boulder JCC to create “stockings” (new socks filled with items that Bridge guests can use if they are living on the street).  We will then carpool and deliver them to Bridge guests during lunch. *This is a great opportunity to get community service hours!
