March Mitzvah Madness: Making our community a better place one action at a time

This March, join us in making our community at ASU a better place by performing Mitzvot: acts of love and kindness. It's simple: come to our Mitzvah events (schedule below) and/or perform Mitzvot on your own. Post pictures of yourself with the hashtags #MarchMitzvahMadness #ASU #NCJ. You accumulate points: 5 points for each event that you attend and 1 point for each additional Mitzvah that you do.

You can win awesome Swag and a FREE TRIP TO ISRAEL!
