Adam Spilkin's BM Mitzvah Project
In the Torah we are commanded to “share bread with the hungry”. For my mitzvah project, I chose to feed the homeless. Every two weeks for the past couple of months I have been making 6 loaves of peanut butter sandwiches and jam sandwiches and then I went with my mom and handed them out to the homeless people who live on the streets near Milnerton Beach. I know by doing this I am practising both tzedakkah and mitzvot and the best part was that I felt so good doing it. And by doing this small deed, I am also practising tikkun olam, repairing this world, in my own small way. And to think that such a small deed can make such a difference in someone’s life. It really made me feel good.
