The Rescue Is Being Mitzvah'd!
In Honor of Naomi's Bat Mitzvah she has chosen Serenity Horse Rescue Inc as her act of good work!
What is a Mitzvah?
In common usage, a mitzvah often means “a good deed”—as in “Do a mitzvah and help Mrs. Goldstein with her packages.” This usage is quite old—the Jerusalem Talmud commonly refers to any charitable act as “the mitzvah.”
Often the word mitzvah is related to the Aramaic word tzavta,2 meaning to attach or join. Tzavta can mean companionship3 or personal attachment.4 In this sense, a mitzvah bundles up the person who is commanded and the Commander, creating a relationship and essential bond.5
The three meanings can themselves be bundled together. “Good” is defined as that which the Creator of the Universe wants done with His universe, and by doing that which the Creator wants done, we are bound up with Him in body, mind and soul.

How will this support the rescue?
So far, numerous bags of grain have been purchased and the rest has gone towards Mac's Medical Bills currently at just under $1,000.00.
We are also working toward a pallet of grain priced at $864
These donations have already helped the horses so much! We are so grateful for all of the help and that Naomi graciously selected us as her Mitzvah!
Another load like this will be purchased tonight!
