Next in this edition of Abe’s Tikun Olam Hour, we interview Judy Feiglin, Melbourne Founder and Co-Ordinator of Mitzvah Day. Judy explains the history of the Day from the U.S., how one woman earned an OBE by bringing it to the U.K. – and how another woman, Judy Feiglin, brought it to Australia, now 5 years ago! Then there were 15 Mitzvah day projects, by last November, there were 70 projects – organisations, family groups and even individuals – like Abe who brought it to the Darebin Spiritual Healing Walk 2 years back, in honour of the Aboriginal elder, Uncle Reg Blow. Judy invited people to start thinking about which organisations they may want to partner with this year – Sunday 15th November.
In the spirit of “Good People” doing Mitzvot, Judy introduced her choice of song, Naomi Shemer – “Anashim Tovim” – and later invited all you “good people” to get involved in the 2015 Mitzvah Day by registering (or contacting her) on www.mitzvahday.org.au – and J-Air endorses any/all Mitzvah Day projects… and encourages you to promote your idea on Abe’s Tikun Olam Hour on a future Sunday night – be in touch!
