Step 1: Choose a Mitzvah
Did you know there are a 613 Mitzvot in the Torah?!
A Mitzvah is a commandment from G-d, it also means connection.
When we do a Mitzvah we create a closer and stronger connection between us and G-d. How special is that?
Step 2: Showcase your Mitzvah
Now that you chose a Mitzvah- it’s time to include it in your parade!
Here are some ideas for how to present your Mitzvah
Build a Model of you Mitzvah:
Use Legos, boxes, pipe cleaners, playdough, blocks
Create a Mitzvah Wand:
Use a empty paper towel roll or wooden stick as a base, twist and tie ribbon, tulle and yarn to it, add stickers and a picture of your Mitzvah
Act out how to do your Mitzvah
Make a Mitzvah Crown:
Cut a strip of paper long enough to go around your head and overlap slightly. Cut a zigzag pattern on the top edge and decorate with markers and stickers. Draw or print a picture of your Mitzvah. Wrap the paper around your head and staple to make a crown. Attach a picture of your Mitzvah to the center of your crown.
Decorate a Sign:
Play some music to get your creative juices going!
Step 3: Record a video of yourself
parading with your Mitzvah
Here are some great tips
Filming outside? Use sidewalk chalk to decorate a path where you’ll be parading with your Mitzvah.
Filming inside? choose a space that you can walk through easily and will get a clear shot through the camera.
Dress up in a fun hat or costume! Boys- be sure to wear a kippah!
Ride your bike, scooter or roller blades
Choose a unique way to parade with your Mitzvah
Riding on a bike or scooter? Attach it to the handlebars!
Marching? Tape it to a stick and hold it loud and proud!
Make sure you are the main focus in the camera frame. We want to see you!
Hold your camera landscape
Introduce yourself: say your name, where you’re from, what Mitzvah you’re showing on your sign, and why you chose it. We want to hear you! Speak as clearly as you can.
March, skip, hop, jump or ride with your Mitzvah project all the way down your “runway”!
Record yourself parading for 15 seconds
