What is a dead day? It’s a day without good deeds and mitzvos. And what’s an alive day, a day brimming with vitality? It’s a day packed with good deeds and mitzvos.

Got Goodness?

Good deeds include acts of kindness as well as acts of duty. Good deeds are driven by the heart. Continue reading Yom Kippur–Pause And Refresh
