The "Mitzvah Day" offers an opportunity for all Hobokenites to give back and volunteer.

Activities this year include work for the Hoboken Shelter and for the Emergency Food Pantry, a visit to senior citizens, a story-time and art project for children, "Coupons for Troops," a nutrition and health activity fair at the Hoboken Housing Authority, a "Bigger and Better" social-action project for teens, a bone-marrow drive, a cemetery clean-up and several other options.

Hobokenites who are interested can take a look at the full list of projects  and sign up through the form on the synagogue's website.

The day will culminate in the synagogue's annual "Welcome Back Barbecue."
