The word “mitzvah” means commandment and today is Mitzvah Day in our community. This will be the third consecutive year we make peanut butter and Fluff ® sandwiches for the homeless at an area synagogue and transport them to a food bank. It’s quite a gratifying experience. There are all sorts of mitzvahs that will be conducted through our area. My hope is that people catch the “fever” and do mitzvahs throughout the year—not just on one day.
