Mitzvah in Motion

Put a mitzvah in motion,
Let’s put a mitzvah in motion,
Everybody put a mitzvah in motion,
Put a mitzvah in motion! (2x)

I give tzedakah
With my little brother.
We give a little every day.

(chorus)

I light the candles
Every Friday night.
They look so pretty and shine so bright.

(chorus)

Mama makes challah
While we sing this song.
She says mushing ‘gredients makes me strong.

(chorus)

Woke up this morning,
And said Modeh Ani.
I am so happy to be me.

(chorus)

Put a mitzvah in motion!

Mitzvah: one of God’s commandments to the Jewish people.
Tzedakah: charity.
Challah: a special braided bread eaten on Shabbat and holidays.
Modeh Ani: one of the morning prayers. See our song of the same name for more information.
