Tikkin Olam
"All it takes is one good deed..."   or a morning full  of Mitzvot!
2017 Mitzvah Day!
Thank you so much to everyone who came out to make Mitzvah Day so successful.

We cleaned the beach in Hingham, knitted many blankets, donated food to the Hingham Food Pantry, performed at Queen Anne's Nursing Home, collected well over 500 books for The Boys and Girls Club, washed cars, beautified our own building inside and out, took CPR lessons and so much more.

Mitzvah Day was able to bring our community together for Tikkun Olam, together we worked to repair the world.

Again, thank you to those who helped up organize and those who participated. 

Jodi Tolman & Marci Bracken

A personal request from   Annette L'Heureux

Dear Friends,

This summer I will be travelling to Rwanda with a small group of adults, along with a few High School students from the  Snowden International High School and  Madison Park high schools in Boston, as representatives from The Kerry Jon Walker Fund.

The Kerry Fund ( provides opportunities for financially challenged teens to participate in such trips and help with the mission.
We will be headed to The Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village in Rwanda as part of an amazing journey of good will, education and charity. The Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village was founded by Anne Heyman and her husband Seth Merrin in response to the lingering problem of orphaned children in the aftermath of the Rwandan genocide in 1994. ASYV continues to service about 500 residential students ...
