Mitzvah Campaigns

 

In the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s the Lubavitcher Rebbe instituted a series of ten Mitzvah campaigns designed to increase awareness of the importance of Mitzvot for Jews of all backgrounds. The Ten-Point Campaign focused on Mitzvot which, because of their centrality to the Torah's guide to life, are ideally suited for a first experience of the mitzvah.

The Mezuzah is a small parchment scroll on which a scribe has hand-written the "Shema Yisrael" prayer.

The Mezuza symbolizes G‑d's constant protection of our homes and those who live within.

We've all heard  the saying "You are what we eat". When we eat only things that G‑d has deemed are appropriate for us, we refine our body such that the physical body becomes a vehicle through which one can impact the spiritual as well.

Rabbi Akive said, "This is the central principle of the Torah". True love of ones fellow is looking past their faults in the same manner that we look past our own faults.

When G‑d gave Moshe the Torah he did so only after the children were offered as guarantors of the Torah. A Torah education is the one foolproof way to ensure the continuity of Judaism for future generations.
