We had a wonderful time at this year’s Lori Sklar Mitzvah Day and we look forward to next year as we make new friends, find a cause you are passionate about, and even change someone’s life  as we dedicate this day to acts of human kindness.

Congregation B’nai Israel is dedicated to performing acts of mitzvot, or good deeds. For over 20 years, members and friends come together to make a difference in our community during Lori Sklar Mitzvah Day.

Mitzvah Day carries on the work of Lori Sklar, a synagogue member who died of breast cancer in 2007. Together with her husband Bill Sklar, Lori founded JACOB International (Jews Against Cancer of the Breast), an organization that raises awareness for breast cancer genetic testing.

Lori Sklar Mitzvah Day is dedicated to making new friends, finding a cause you are passionate about, and changing lives. Members and friends take part in various social action initiatives, both on campus and off. We hope you can join us this year!

This volunteer opportunity is exclusive to CBI Members, SLJ & NCECE Families.

If you would like to enjoy the priviledges of membership, please contact Jill Stern or 561.241.8118 for more information.
