Due to COVID-19 and the Coronavirus pandemic all in person programs have been canceled or postponed until further notice. We have developed a wide array of resources available at http://bit.ly/2wU5CTS and are now offering Daily Virtual Mitzvah Opportunities.

Each day will feature a particular theme that offers ideas that can be done virtually as well as suggestions that can be implemented in the future.

All of these programs are dedicated:

  • In memory of those that have been lost to COVID-19.  We feel for each and every family and may they be comforted amongst the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
  • For a quick and complete recovery for those currently battling COVID-19.  We pray for you and your families.
  • In honor of the heroes and first reponders, the medical staff, delivery workers and all those serving with distinction at this much challenging time to keep us safe.  We thank you and acknowledge your courage, bravery, dedicate, commitment and sacrifice and when this is over we will never forget your leadership and personal example.

Today’s theme is: Hakarat HaTov

Then, you shall rejoice with all the good that the Lord, your God, has granted you and your household you, the Levite, and the stranger who is among you (Deuteronomy 26:11).


  1. Create a charity campaign to help feed healthcare workers in hospitals.  If you want to participate in ours – we have already provided 1,800 meals to front line workers at
    Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, Englewood Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Holy Name Hospital and Medical Center and Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps) – you can donate at https://areyvut.org/donate/ and can select other under the drop down menu and put in CommUNITY and please note that the automated response will need to sufficient for an acknowledgement.
  2. Help raise funds for PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) for healthcare workers and collect unopened boxes of PPE to donate to hospitals.
  3. Write letters of support to your local fire, ambulance and police department to say thank you.
  4. Write a great review online for your favorite services.
  5. Contact any healthcare workers you know to simply thank them for their dedication and service at this time.

Into the future:

  1. Send a gift basket or thank you card to those who have helped you recently.
  2. Take a step back and thank those who help you daily.
  3. Write thank you notes to the people to whom you are most grateful.  Be specific and detailed.
  4. Smile at everyone who helps you.
  5. Thank God every day.
  6. Visit https://www.gratefulpushkah.com/ and request a Grateful Pushkah so that you can develop an attitude of gratitude daily.

If you have more ideas for this theme and/or ideas for future days please let us know by e-mailing your suggestions to info@areyvut.org.
