It's time to roll up your sleeves, rally your friends, and join your neighbors to make a difference on the North Shore. Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) and the Jewish Teen Initiative of Greater Boston (JTI) are excited to partner together for North Shore Mitzvah Day, where mensches of all ages come together to give back and have fun.

We’ll work with an incredible group of teen and adult leaders on projects to support Lifebridge and the Plummer Youth Promise in Salem. With projects geared toward families with young children as well as adults and teens, there’s a meaningful way for everyone to participate in this intergenerational event.
