Mitzvah Action: Buy a Book

With all the time you’re spending at home, have you considered some décor changes? 

Whether it’s a clock, plant or …. What we choose to decorate our living spaces with, sets the tone and mood of our environment.Get your home to feel more Jewish, simply buy a new Jewish book (and put it on a shelf).To quote the great poet and thinker, Rabbi Juda Halevi: “my library is my garden and my orchard”. With the purchase of a few Jewish books, you can transform and elevate your home. Their presence alone will permeate the entire home.Buying books is a great investment; it is the only home furniture that ages gracefully upon its continued use.

And it makes you look smart too.
