Pacific Northwest: Our Own Commandments

By Mitzvah Corps Pacific Northwest II 2018 Participants

Last Shabbat, we discussed the Torah portion, which revisits the Ten Commandments, and used it as a jumping off point to think about the commandments and guidelines we want for ourselves for the duration of this trip and beyond. Below are a few of our “commandments:”

Practice Forgiveness

Allow Others Second Chances

Approach challenges with a positive mindset and a can-do attitude

Stand up for what you believe in

Do not neglect the crops you sow

Demand change by enacting it

Ask questions often and always

Strive to see the best in people

You shall not disrespect someone else’s dignity

Be patient

Understand

Be brave
