St. Louis Jewish and Muslim Day of Community Service
The Jewish and Muslim Day of Community Service, a program of the Jewish Community Relations Council and the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis, was inaugurated in December of 2011. This annual event takes place on Christmas Day and engages volunteers at sites throughout the region, from St. Charles to downtown St. Louis City.
The Jewish and Muslim Day of Community Service mobilizes members of the Jewish and Muslim communities, as well as those of other backgrounds and faiths, to volunteer at over 20 community service sites in the Saint Louis region, allowing Christians at these agencies to spend the holiday with loved ones. This event builds ties among people of different backgrounds and faiths. It also emphasizes the importance of helping others and giving back during the holiday season.
The Day of Community Service focuses on:
Serving the community by doing acts of loving kindness
Bringing together Jews, Muslims and people of other faiths to build relationships through service to the greater community.
