Vassar Temple Dutchess County Mitzvah DayVassar Temple devoted Sunday, May 5, to helping the community as part of the countywide Mitzvah Day sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Dutchess County. With projects ranging from painting a fence at a local dairy farm to cleaning up a Poughkeepsie stream, from collecting food to the poor to baking them cookies, there was a project for everyone.

In support of the program, Vassar Temple cancelled Sunday-morning religious school classroom activities, making it possible for parents to attend with their children.

By the end of the event, dozens of Vassar Temple members had joined members of other communities to help improve the lives of thousands of local residents.
