Mitzvah Day and Jewish Interactive have begun the roll-out of an exciting new international 'Mitzvah Connect' competition for children and schools.
A two part competition, students are invited to submit a digital creation based on a Mitzvah and come up with a unique idea for a hands on Mitzvah Day project for schools or youth groups connected to their chosen mitzvah. Mitzvah Day focusses on the Jewish mitzvot, or values of gemilut chassadim, (loving kindness); tikkun olam, (repairing the world) and tzedek, (righteousness).
Closing date for submissions midnight GMT 8 August 20
