Mitzvah Opportunites

Bring Tzedakah on Sundays!

The prophetic ideal of Reform Judaism is preached as well as practiced in the Breman Religious School. The mitzvah of tzedakah (just and righteous actions) encourages and enables children in our school to contribute towards Jewish and general philanthropic causes in a purposeful and educational manner. In the process, they learn the art of participation in organized Jewish community life. 


Students are encouraged to bring tzedakah (loose change or cash) weekly to class. The majority of funds collected help subsidize our Zaban Paradies Center for Homeless Couples lunch making. In addition, students are requested to bring a can of food each week to support Atlanta’s local food bank.


The Breman Religious School collects needed items for The Zaban Paradies Center for Homeless Couples and Toomer Elementary School (our adopted school) during our collection drive in August. Our 4th and 7th grade students also make lunches for the Zaban Paradies Center for Homeless Couples as a part of their Sunday morning curriculum.


Project Merry Mitzvah (8th-12th Grades)

Teens are invited to participate in our annual mitzvah project for The Zaban Paradies Center for Homeless Couples in December. Teens are needed to help fundraise, plan, and implement the meal and shopping experience for the residents. We hold a fundraising carnival in the fall after Religious School to raise money for this event.
