What’s a “Mitzvah”?
You may have heard people – primarily Jews – use the term “Mitzvah” in describing a good deed accomplished or within the name of transformational ceremonies for young boys and girls – the Bar and Bat Mitzvah.
Translated from Hebrew, the word “mitzvah" is not merely a “good deed,” but actually a commandment, among over 600 derived from the Torah. All such commandments were traditionally understood to come from God in guiding Jewish people on how to live their lives.
So, a “mitzvah” in a sense is more than just acting with goodness and generosity in dealing with families, friends and strangers. Rather, it is all about making an ongoing commitment to live a holy life, most often giving of one’s time, talent and philanthropy in support of an individual in need or a specific cause.
As a group of Christian Women we challenge ourselves to live like Jesus to become people of influence for our Lord and Savior. Sign up here to get the weekly email on Monday morning encouraging you in your spirit-filled daily walk. Be inspired – and most of all, be generous with your loving acts of caring. Be a Mitzvah Maker!
Join us every Monday as we kick off the week with a Mitzvah Challenge and then share your success on Facebook with all.
And as you join us in praising the Living God for the miracle of the modern-day state of Israel, we pray you’ll renew your own resolve to bless Israel and the Jewish people by giving a generous gift of support.
May God bless you for being a blessing to Israel and the Jewish people
