June Mitzvah Morning

June 6, 2021 - 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Camp HOPE America is a summer camp specifically for children from Fairfield County who are victims of domestic abuse. The camp provides a clinically proven program designed to help these children overcome trauma in order to lead more hopeful and resilient lives.  For two weeks during August, Camp HOPE America campers will spend time at Camp Hi-Rock in the Berkshires enjoying activities in the outdoors, while receiving critical counseling and therapeutic services.

On June 6 at 11:00 a.m., we will meet at B’nai Israel to help pack trunks for the campers.  Many of the campers are lacking the essential items they will need for their time away, so we are looking for B’nai Israel volunteers to help provide them.  Some supplies we are looking for include backpacks, batteries, flashlights, fleece blankets, water bottles, laundry bags, and pillow cases.

Volunteers can bring these items to Mitzvah Morning, or are welcome to drop them off in the B’nai Israel lobby the week before the event.  In addition, there is an Amazon wishlist which will be published in our email communications.  Any items purchased on the Amazon wishlist will be delivered directly to B’nai Israel. Gently used items are welcome as well.

For any additional questions, contact Nina Silberman at or Mitch Weinstein at We look forward to seeing you there.
