Frequently asked questions

How long does the Challenge last?


The JOI Mitzvah Challenge begins the first day of the Hebrew month Elul (September 1), which is the month before Rosh Hashanah, and ends after the High Holidays are over (October 13).




Who is eligble?


The Challenge is open to all Jews, everywhere. In fact, you can earn points for recruiting your friends and family. Each family that you recruit entitles your family to 50 points, make sure the people you recruit enter your name when they register for the challenge. You can only log mitzvah that you don’t regularly do prior to the Challenge. We are encouraging families to do the Challenge together as a family.




Can I do the Challenge without the rest of my family?


Ideally, this is a program for families to do together and to encourage one another to log as many points as possible. Items that are not personal in nature (like prayer, etc.) assume the entire family will be participating (like Shabbat dinner, etc.)




How does it work?


Each participant will look over the Mitzvos log and select Mitzvos from the list. They will then keep track of each mitzvah performed by each family member and log the information each Sunday on the JOI Mitzvah Log using the same email address they registered with. Each Monday there will be raffle for a prize. A grand prize will be awarded at the end of the challenge. In order to enter to win the grand prize you need to accumulate (and log) points every week of the challenge. Grand prize is a Southwest flight package to the destination of your choice for a family of 4. Weekly prizes include a weekend in Keystone, Children's Musuem passes, Children's Musuem Family Membership, JOI Prime Family Membership and Shabbat dinner for your family and up to 10 friends at the Lehrfields.




What can we win?


The Grand Prize is a weekend in Keystone for your family. Weekly prizes include $180 Visa Gift Card, Children's Museum passes, Children's Museum Family Membership, JOI Prime Family Membership, High Holiday Tickets and Shabbat dinner for your family and up to 10 friends at the Lehrfields.Children's Musuem passes, Children's Musuem Family Membership, JOI Prime Family Membership, High Holiday Tickets and Shabbat dinner for your family and up to 10 friends at the Lehrfields.
