Welcome to A Mitzvah to Eat.


A Mitzvah to Eat is a pluralistic support network and online resource hub for Jews who need accommodations for Jewish ritual practices due to health conditions, disabilities, trauma, and more. 

Whether you need to eat on Yom Kippur, you aren't able to light Chanukah candles, or there's some other mitzvah or Jewish custom for which you use an accommodation - you aren't alone.
