KNOXVILLE (WVLT) -- More than 100 members of the Jewish community came together on Sunday for a day of good deeds.
It was part of the Knoxville Jewish Alliances Mitzvah day.
A mitzvah is a commandment, or personal obligation, and the alliance uses the yearly event to focus on the Jewish tradition of Tikkun Olam, meaning to repair or perfect the world.
"It's our job to make it a better place to live,” said Stephen Rosen, a member of the Jewish community. “It's a nice opportunity to get the whole community together to do these types of good deeds simultaneously."
The day’s events included children painting flowerpots, and learning to sing songs, adults donating blood right outside the Arnstein Jewish Community Center, and others helping to build a Habitat for Humanity home.
