Catch the Kindness Bug

Did you know that kindness is contagious?

You know that warm and fuzzy feeling you get upon seeing someone perform an act of kindness? According to studies, this natural high makes people want to behave more altruistically towards others.

If kindness is quite literally contagious, what can we do ensure it spreads far and wide?

Areyvut, a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading the values of chesed (kindness), tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (social justice), has produced a

2016 A Kindness a Day calendar, a tool that will encourage acts of kindness every day of the year.

A Kindness a Day is not a standard monthly calendar. It is a flip calendar that includes daily suggestions as to how you can incorporate the core Jewish values of chesed, tzedakah and tikkun olam into your everyday life. The calendar acts as an educational tool as well - each action item corresponds with a source derived from a Jewish text, offering a daily connection to our heritage and tradition.

This calendar accomplishes two goals: it empowers its readers to take an active role in strengthening relationships with others and educates them on Jewish text and tradition.

To purchase the calendar, visit www.areyvut.org/shop
