What mitzvot do our Community Mitzvah Doers do?
I am so glad you asked! Our community helpers are out there, everyday, saving lives and helping people being held or cared for in an unkind way. They help people that might need support having peaceful conversations and they help them work out their differences. Our Mitzvah Doers also help people when something is taken from them. They look for these items and try to find them so that they can hopefully be returned. These mitzvot are called:
Pikuach Nefesh: Saving a Life
Pidyon Shvuim: Redeeming Captives
Hava’at Shalom Bein Adam LaHavero: Bringing peace between people
Hashavat Aveidah: Returning lost articles
