Publisher Comments:

When her father passed away in 2006, Linda Cohens busy life as a mother, wife, and entrepreneur came to a screeching halt. She took a spiritual sabbatical to work through her grief, and she came out of it resolved to embark upon a project: perform one thousand acts of kindness—mitzvahs—to honor her fathers memory.

1,000 Mitzvahs shares Cohens two-and-a-half-year journey from sorrow to inspiration through simple daily acts of kindness. She presents each mitzvah as a short vignette, and the myriad forms they take—from helping the elderly to donating to good causes to baking and collecting food for others—highlight the many ways in which one person can touch the lives of others. As she pursues her quest, Cohen finds that her life is improved by these small acts—that every time she goes out of her way to do something good for someone else, she enhances her own well-being.

More than a touching story of a daughters love for her father, 1,000 Mitzvahs is a testament to the transformational power of kindness, and a call to arms for those who would like to follow in Cohens footsteps with their own mitzvahs—no matter how large or how small.

It is amazing how simple things like a hug and a smile when someone is down or hurting, paying for breakfast for the person behind you, a small, inexpensive, unexpected gift, a thinking of you card out of the blue, etc. can make a difference in someone's life, including your's, if even for a brief moment. Read this uplifting, inspiring book.
