The Hebrew word Mitzvah is related to the word tzavta which means, connection. Every mitzvah is an act of connection linking us to our Jewish heritage, the spiritual core of our soul, and to G-d, Himself. Performing mitzvahs endows our lives, homes, and communities
with increased warmth, sensitivity, depth and joy.
Maimonides writes that a person should always see himself and the entire world as equally balanced between good and evil. With just one positive deed, one can tip the balance and bring salvation for the entire world.
The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson declared,"
Moshiach is ready to come.
All that we have to do, is to add in acts
of Goodness and Kindness."
Maybe the final act of goodness that tips
the scale to Redemption will be yours!
How can the lowest of all worlds become the highest of all worlds?
Through doing the mitzvahs, we use physical objects to perform G-d's will. By donating a dollar, shaking the lulav, eating matzah on Passover, lighting Shabbos candles, putting on Tefillin, eating Kosher food, we bring G-d's
essence to the world. In this way we strengthen and elevate the physical world so that it can fully receive the infinite revelation of G-d.
More powerful than angels!
Our sages tell us that one penny in the pushke (charity box) contains more spiritual energy than all of the angels in the universe combined! Tzedakah has a tremendous power to bring light into the world and to erase the wrong
that we have done.
