ABOUT MAZEL TOTS MITZVOT

At Mazel Tots, teaching about helping others is part of the curriculum:  

  • The children learn about giving tzedakah and doing mitzvot. In addition, the children in our Three’s and Four’s classes earn money for chores done at home and bring their tzedakah to school.   As a class, they discuss and decide which organizations to support.

  • Families help feed the hungry by sending their children to school with the Food of the Month as requested by the United Interfaith Food Bank.  The Food Bank relies on these donations to help feed the hungry just 20 minutes away from us in the North Bronx.

  • Parents organize drives for items such as children's equipment (including play pens, car seats and strollers) to benefit organizations such as the Sharing Shelf in Portchester.

  • The Program Director and faculty organize an annual "Hop-a-thon", Pajama Day and other programs to encourage giving to others and teach about tolerance, acceptance and Tikkun Olam.

 

Past Events

Pajama Drive
​2014-2019
​The children of Mazel Tots came to school in pajamas and brought with them new children's pajamas to help keep a needy child warm over the upcoming fall and winter.  Thanks to the generosity of our Mazel Tots' families, over 50 pairs of pajamas are being donated to the Sharing Shelf in Port Chester who will distribute the pajamas to underprivileged children throughout the County.

Hop-a-Thon: Every February
Each February, Mazel Tots participates in a “Hop-a-thon” to help benefit children with Muscular Dystrophy.  In addition to all the fun the children have hopping, they learn so many lessons connected to the event.  First and foremost-Tzedakah!  It is truly a case of children helping children!  The curriculum leading up to the event helps to point out differences and difficulties people have in various aspects of their lives.  It is the perfect way to talk about and teach tolerance and acceptance.

Children's Book Drive
March - April 2016

During the month of March, all the Mazel Tots classes immerse themselves in books or an author study.  The teachers made the stories come alive through art, imaginative play, cooking and acting.  Our families support the Child Care Council of Westchester's Annual Children's Book Drive by collecting and donating books in good condition for young children.  We love being able to share the joy of reading in our community!
