Families Serving Together

Mark your calendars!
The Edlavitch DCJCC is excited to announce the 2017-2018 Families Serving Together line-up (below).


Families Serving Together is a program designed for school-age children and their families to participate in once-a-month volunteering. Come to one or come to all! These volunteer programs are for children of all ages and with various organizations throughout the DC Metro area. For questions, please contact Sonya Weisburd, Director Social Justice and Volunteer Programs.

Be one of 1,000 people making a difference in the lives of 10,000! We serve over 60 social service agencies throughout DC. Projects range from 2-4 hours in length and include serving meals, preparing food, visiting seniors, painting, and throwing Christmas parties.


March 4: Purim and Social Justice

Along with being merry, eating delicious hamentaschen, and dressing up in costume, the holiday of Purim directs us to give gifts to those less fortunate - or "matanot la'evyonim", in Hebrew. Join us during the EDCJCC's family Purim celebration to make sandwiches for Martha's Table, which operates a nightly mobile food service on the streets of DC, and costumes for Only Make Believe, a non-profit that creates and performs interactive theatre for children in hospitals and care facilities.

Join the EDCJCC and the entire Washington Jewish community, along volunteers from around the world, for this fun, annual Day of Service.
