We are busy working on educational materials and project ideas for our 2012 National Mitzvah Day which will take place March 16-18, 2012. Please save the date and plan to join us and others throughout the country in actively making a difference in building our communities. The theme is Olam Chesed Yibaneh or “The world is built on kindness.” For National Mitzvah Day we have developed a variety of hands-on project ideas that directly relate to physically building, and building and strengthening community and interpersonal relationships. We have heard the phrase Olam Chesed Yibaneh many times and were familiar with the concept but did not know the source and in preparing for the program we sought out the source. The phrase is from Tehillim (Psalms) 89:3. It is important that people use sources for concepts that have their basis in text and to attribute things appropriately.
