Super Sunday Mitzvah
Dear Akiva Families,

We ask everyone to help make this Super Mitzvah Sunday a success by volunteering between 12 and 2 when Akiva is taking a shift. Please bring your family as it is a family friendly event and we will help raise money for our community and our school. We need to have at least 10 volunteers on our shift. Please let the office know if you are able to volunteer. 

Thank you
