Jacksonville’s 25th Anniversary of Holiday Mitzvah – a quarter century of Giving


The Jacksonville Jewish Federation, River Garden Hebrew Home and AGING TRUE are celebrating their Silver Anniversary of Giving this year!  We will once again join together for the 25th annual Holiday Mitzvah program on Saturday, December 24, and Sunday, December 25.

Mitzvah is a Hebrew word meaning a kind act, a pious action. So it follows that every year for 25 years, dedicated Volunteers lovingly prepare delicious kosher meals at River Garden Hebrew home on December 24th, packaging them with care for Christmas morning delivery. 

On Christmas morning, more volunteers from the Jewish community will take over the Meals on Wheels program, delivering a traditional holiday meal to over 400 homebound, elderly and disabled seniors.

The Holiday Mitzvah program is grateful to Ken Jacobs, managing partner of the Jacksonville office law firm of GrayRobinson for his continued sponsorship of this meaningful event.  This program is chaired by volunteers, Mike and Tammy Shumer.

AGING TRUE was initiated in 1962 as Cathedral Foundation of Jacksonville and in our 50 years of operations we have served hundreds of thousands of north Florida seniors and their families. Our health, nutritional and financial care programs are designed specifically to serve and educate the frail elderly and disabled in our region.
