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. We provide educational and spiritual resources, original personal prayers, as well as Jewish learning and workshops. We are building a more connected and compassionate Jewish community that illuminates sparks of holiness within acts of self-preservation.
WHO WE ARE
We are Jewish educators, clergy and community members who feel passionately that rituals and mitzvot should not cause harm or suffering. Guided by our commitment to Jewish law (halacha), Jewish belonging and Jewish continuity, we believe that Jews who need accommodations for mitzvot should not have to do so by themselves, but rather they should be given respectful communal space and be treated as equal members of the Jewish community.
