Our Mitzvah Brigade is back!

The Mitzvah Brigade is an active support group for CBA. Our members participate in various in-house and community projects.

We are currently collecting toiletries for Safe House Seminole and towels for Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. 

Our ongoing projects include:

The Care Team:

Provides support to our CBA families when they have suffered a loss.
Ensures there is a Minyan for the funeral and Shiva.
Prepares “Shiva Meals” to be delivered to the immediate grieving family.
Assists caregivers while a loved one is ill.

Jewish Family Services / JFS:

Members assist at least once a month at the JFS Food Pantry.
Participate in the ongoing Yom Kippur food drive.


Purchase and present the candlesticks given to the B’nai Mitzvah.


A community program that assists the disadvantaged in Central Florida through the complex steps of getting personal identification. Documents like birth certificates, Florida ID cards, and Social Security cards are essential for anyone to fully take part in society.

On an individual basis, our members volunteer to assist this communitywide program.

Ronald McDonald House:

RMH provides a home away from home for families with children receiving treatment at hospitals and medical facilities in Orlando.

Sneakers That Fit:

The Mitzvah Brigade partners with other community groups to provide help make sure children in their community get a decent pair of shoes. Many families are struggling, especially with the economic impact of Covid-19. Schools are reporting that children oftentimes come to school without socks or ill-fitting shoes, or shoes with holes in them. The Mitzvah Brigade believes our children deserve shoes that fit. To make a donation or get involved, please contact the Congregation Beth Am office.

Safe House Of Seminole County:

We collect paper goods, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, shampoos, linens, etc. for the residents.
We also collect infant and toddler clothes as well as adult women’s shoes for them to wear on job interviews.
We deliver fresh fruits every month.

To request more information, please call the office at 407-862-3505 or email
