Mitzvah Day

Mitzvah Day is a national Jewish Day of Social Action that brings people together to make a difference to the local community around them.

Menorah Outreach is asking everyone to help with clothing donations for those in need from 1st November to 17th November.


Women’s pants, vests, bras, tights, socks, nighties 

Children’s pants, vests, socks, pyjamas 

These items will be donated to MANCHESTER WOMEN’S AID at the Pankhurst Centre, which helps women and children escape domestic abuse. The Pankhurst Centre which promotes the work of MWA, is entirely reliant on donations from supporters

Wrap Up Greater Manchester is one of the projects Manchester Liberal Jewish Community is supporting this year for Mitzvah Day.

Rotarians in Greater Manchester are collecting your old, unwanted coats and giving them to charities that support the homeless, refugees, children living in poverty and people fleeing domestic violence (to name a few).  

Any size, style, colour of men’s, women’s and children’s coats will be greatly appreciated. There are a wide range of easily accessible drop-off points such as Salford City Council Hubs in Broughton, Pendleton, Eccles, Worsley & Walden as well as many locations in Manchester.
