Mitzvah Mornings

Mitzvah Morning Is Back!

Help us kick off the 2023–2024 season of Mitzvah Mornings! Join us on Sunday, September 10, at 10:00 a.m. at Congregation B’nai Israel’s cemetery, located at 245 Kings Highway East in Fairfield. We will meet there to wash headstones to clean them of dirt and moss.

Over the past several decades, the headstones at the cemetery have endured nature’s harsh elements and are in need of some serious refreshing. We will spend some time scrubbing and cleaning these headstones in honor of those who came before us.

This will be a very rewarding and meaningful experience for those who attend, as this is a wonderful opportunity to work with others in the B’nai Israel community and bond with your fellow congregants.

We will have cleaning supplies, including buckets and sponges, available. Feel free to bring your own gloves, as we will be using a bleach solution on the headstones.
