  • Family Mitzvah Day - All Are Welcome!
    Time: 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

    This special Family Day is designed to celebrate the BJEP community. Please plan to stay at Family Table with your children.

    There is nothing that feels better than helping others. Please join us to participate in a variety of activities, appropriate for different age groups, BJEP is able to give back to the community, both in Waltham and beyond. Some projects include making sandwiches for the homeless, making dog toys for animals in the shelter, making cards with inspirational messages for kids and young people who are in need. BJEP's Mitzvah Day is one of our favorite days of the year! In the Torah, we learn "na-aseh v'nishma," which means "we will do and we will listen/understand." Our sages understood that, sometimes, the best learning happens through doing!
