Community offered opportunity to do good deeds in memory of 9/11 victims
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The Lubavitch-Chabad Jewish Student Center and the Chabad-Lubavitch Student Group at the University of Florida commemorates the anniversary of 9/11 until 3 p.m. today at Turlington Plaza with a Good Deed Mitzvah Marathon in honor of the victims.
The marathon is designed to present students and others with opportunities to do a good deed in memory of those who died on Sept. 11, 2001. Participants will be able to choose from a variety of opportunities to do good deeds. They will fill out a form to document their deed and attach it to a picture of a victim of 9/11, which will then be fastened to a mini-wooden replica of the Twin Towers, creating the “twin towers of good deeds and love.”
Each participant will receive a sticker acknowledging his or her good deed.
At 12:45 p.m. a moment of silence will take place in memory of the victims.
