We have a saying in my house that Sunday is Family Fun Day! Those words were never truer than this past Sunday. I packed up the kids along with my husband and mom and we headed over to JF&CS Headquarters in Waltham.

I had the privilege of chairing the first ever JF&CS Family Mitzvah Moments event with Danielle Darish and Rachel Glazer. We reached out to the community, friends, and family and invited everyone to join us with their families for an afternoon of tikkun olam– repairing the world through acts of charity and kindness. Everyone created kiddish cups, afikomen bags, and cards that will be given to older adults at the annual JF&CS Friendly Visitor Passover Seder in April.

It was so nice to look around the room and see so many kids creating these special gifts and all the parents chatting with old friends and meeting and making new ones. Just feeling the mood in the room and knowing that my family made this Sunday Family Fun Day one for the books. It was truly awe inspiring and fulfilling.

Thank you to all who joined us and who helped make this event an amazing success!
