It's all anonymous and very inspiring to see what people took upon themselves.
Even the tiniest step in the right directions counts!
It originated as part of a forum of frum women discussing the current global situation:
You know something? I was thinking about the discussion yesterday about the tight situations that many are finding themselves in.
On the thread - a point was brought up in regard to taking on Shabbos 10 minutes earlier as a zechus for Klal Yisroel - all the Cholim & the hardship in many areas.
Hashem does want something of us!
That much is quite clear!
As Nashim Tzidkanios - we know that it was in our zechus that Klal Yisroel was redeemed in Mitzrayim and now again - it will be us - the Nashim Tzidkanios that "get it" who will enable the Geula Shelaima to take place.
Personally, when it comes to doing something - there isn't one size fits all.
Not everyone and their circumstances has the ability to take on Shabbos earlier.
Not everyone and their circumstances has the ability to cut their Shaitels..
Not everyone and their circumstances has the ability to dispose of technology...
Not everyone and their circumstances has the ability to ....
But everyone does have the ability to do SOMETHING!
AND THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING OF ALL!
Iyov was punished harshly because he kept silent.
Silence is the worst.
Hashem is shouting for our attention. We have to give it to Him. Each individual in whichever capacity they are capable, in whichever level they up to, in whichever area they are comfortable.
Look through the 613 Mitzvohs or the Al Cheit which we say on Yom Kippur for ideas of where even the tiniest improvement can be done.
Another thing that I always find effective - when something is written - it is more concrete.
Therefore, I attached this shared excel spreadsheet where we can write down the ideas which we have and really stick to what we say.
Of course - no names should be posted - unless you'd like to....
I'm no holier than thou girl or anything of the like.
I just can't watch things and know that we have the power to effect change - and not do something about it.
So I am.
And hoping that so are you.
But we can definitely all do something no matter how small.
And that "something" MATTERS...to Hashem.
(Thanks again, Hadassa!)
