What is Harvey Morgenstein Mitzvah Day?

We dedicate this annual day of service as Harvey Morgenstein Mitzvah Day to honor Betty Morgenstein’s late husband. Harvey’s commitment to social action & justice reach far beyond our TBE boundaries and deep into our community. Together, Harvey & Betty started the most active Social Action Committee that Temple Beth-El has ever had and also initiated & chaired our very first Mitzvah Day. Each year we hope to live up to Harvey’s legacy!
