Thank you for joining more than 8,000 fellow volunteers across our community on Sunday, April 2 for our sixth annual Sara & Samuel J. Lessans Good Deeds Day. As the largest organized Good Deeds Day effort in the Americas, your commitment to tikkun olam (repairing the world) shows the international Jewish community Greater Washington’s passion for social action!

Federation’s Good Deeds Day is made possible by Drs. Ellen & Stuart Lessans, in loving memory of Sara & Samuel J. Lessans.

Good Deeds Day is produced in partnership with Federation’s Jconnect, the local Jewish Community Centers, Federation partner agencies, congregations and other organizations.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington welcomes the participation of interfaith couples and families, and people of all abilities, backgrounds, gender identities and sexual orientations. Building an inclusive community is a Federation priority.
