Volunteers get in the
mood for the holidays.

Counter-clockwise from top lefi•


ore than 250 volunteers
gathered Sept. 21 at
the Max M. Fisher
Federation Building in
Bloomfield Township to get their
assignments for the annual Itsa
Mitzvah Day.
All day long, individuals and fami-
lies spread throughout the communi-
ty to perform mitzvahs of various
kinds. Some folks visited older adults
and those with disabilities. Others did
outdoor beautification or helped with
sukkah building. Another group
helped at a food bank. It was a perfect
way to get in the mood for the holi-
day season.
Itsa Mitzvah is sponsored by the
Women's Campaign and Education
Department of the Jewish Federation
of Metropolitan Detroit, in coopera-
tion with Unique Restaurant
Corporation in Bingham Farms, and
is a program of Federation's Volunteer
Network. Co-chairs were Sherri Ketai
and Sarah Krasnick.

A crowd of volunteers mingles with residents
of the Teitel Apartments in Oak Park.

Ellie Krasnick, 8, of Huntington Woods,
Bernice Yendick of West Bloomfield and Min
Samet, 17, of Oak Park decorate cookie bags.

Jodie Krasnick and Marlee Newman, 7, boti,
of Huntington Woods, make cookies, while
Stacey Doctoroff of Huntington Woods works
on bagging them.

Michael Mayer and his mom, Helen, of West
Bloomfield decorate cookies to distribute.
