School supplies

mitzvahs

It’s hard to believe that I have finally reached my final 10 mitzvahs for this 1000 mitzvah project. What started out as a crazy idea in the middle of the night has turned into something powerful and beneficial. These past few weeks,  I have been slow to track mitzvahs because I wasn’t quite ready to finish.

People continue to ask me what I plan to do next. For now, I have decided to blog about other volunteer opportunities or interesting stories about mitzvahs that happen after I have finished my project. I am looking for speaking engagements and ways to share my story. In addition, I have  begun work on a book proposal and look forward to that journey as it unfolds.  The old saying goes, “When one door closes another one opens” so I expect as I complete the original mitzvah project  a new piece of it will emerge.
