Mitzvah of the Month

September 2018
Making Peace

Think & Discuss:

What does it mean to be a “living sanctuary”?

What does love prepare us for?

What are some places you feel holiness?

How can we bring holiness out of the sanctuary and into our daily interactions?

How is making peace – oseh shalom – related to being a “living sanctuary”?

Jewish Text:

Oseh shalom bimromav hu ya’aseh shalom aleinu v’al kol Yisrael v’imru Am.
God who makes peace in the heavens will make peace amongst us and all of Israel.
We say, Amen.

(From the prayerbook)

Looking for ways to do good = Mitzvot

Think & Discuss:

What motivated the man in the video to do good?
Can you do good without expecting thanks or acknowledgement?
What are some small things that make a difference in your life?
Why is it tempting to take small things for granted?

Jewish Text:

Lo alecha hamlacha ligmor, v’lo atah ben chorin l’hibatel mimena.
You are not expected to complete the task but neither are you free to avoid it.
Rabbi Tarfon, Pirkei Avot 2:21
