Mitzvah Fair

Hands up in the air

Advance registration is closed for Community Mitzvah Day. Walk-ins are welcome. See you on Sunday!

Old York Road Temple – Beth Am has been hosting its own Mitzvah Day for many years. This year we are expanding to include the Kehillah Mitzvah Fair.

We encourage everyone to drop off contributions of requested items beginning April 17, 2023 at the back door of our parking lot at 971 Old York Road, Abington, PA. The following donations will be accepted through Mitzvah Day:
