MInor Fasts and Tisha FAQ #8.png


A Mitzvah to Eat supports those who need to connect to fast days, mitzvot, or holidays differently to protect their health, save their lives, or reduce their suffering. We empower individuals and communities with learning, prayers, and resources to bring holiness to acts of self-preservation.


We are an international, pluralistic group of educators and clergy who feel passionately that mitzvot should not cause harm or suffering. We believe that people who need to connect to mitzvot or holidays differently should not be expected to do so by themselves, but rather they should be welcomed as part of a supported community. If you would like to get involved, please contact us.
