Mitzvah Garden

Mitzvah day 2012 was the kick off day to start a new garden at B'nai Jacob to help feed the hungry in Connecticut. Since then, many families have been volunteering their time to maintain the garden and bring food to the food bank.

This garden is part of a greater project called Harvest Now. Organizations throughout Connecticut participate with their own gardens. The produce is weighed and delivered to various food banks in the state.

This is a great way to get involved, its easy and rewarding...a great family project.

It is a great mitzvah to be able to grow fresh, healthy food for the hungry.

If you would like to help with the garden please email Andrea Fleischman at
