The Way We Were in 2003


Knoxville Jewish Alliance’s First Mitzvah Day


Mitzvah Day in 2003 included craft projects, blood donations, preschool classroom improvements, creating a wall hanging to be sent to KJA’s sister city Hadera, Israel, singing at an assisted living facility, and other good deeds.
