This year was the 15th year MJDS has held Mitzvah Day in memory of Michael Kovnar, an MJDS student who passed away due to cancer in 1999 when he was in the 7th grade. To honor his short life and legacy of raising money for others in need, middle school students volunteer at different locations all over the city while lower school students do work for a number of different charities back at school. Some of the organizations students volunteered with were: the JCC, Gan Ami, St. Ann's, Hunger Task Force, the Jewish Home, SHARP Literacy, the VA Hospital, Hope House and more. Mitzvah Day is an incredible day of community service and a special tradition at MJDS.
