This week's 7th Grade Mitzvah Corps Passport News

Upcoming Sessions:

Fall Opening Session: Sunday, September 8 8:15 a.m.-12 p.m. - We’re taking hands-on Jewish social justice learning on the road in 2019-2020. When it comes to putting Jewish values into action, we believe nothing will prepare our students better than engaging different mitzvot firsthand through site visits to some of the Bay Area’s most exciting organizations doing good in this world. Field trips will be one Sunday per month, with detailed itinerary sent to parents in advance of each session.

First session will be Sunday September 8, heading to GLIDE Memorial in San Francisco. All students will meet at PTBE to board buses at 8:15 a.m. and return to PTBE at 12 p.m. Look forward to a memo with details from Rabbi Laura.

Please note: Due to parking lot construction, drop-off and pick-up will take place in the neighboring lot at 1900 Alameda.
