There are dozens of ways to use Mitzvah Cards, here are a few and also some card samples:
1. You can draw one card weekly for reflection, study & practice.
2. Sort the cards by mitzvot you keep, those for further learning, and mitzvot you aren’t ready to take on. (Great way to know where to focus your learning going forward)
3. Discuss each with a friend or teacher.
4. Invite your guests at dinners and events to each draw a mitzvah card, and then raise questions, or share a related mitzvah story or teaching.
5. Excellent bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah gift or table favor; consider giving together with matching companion volume Mitzvah Stories: Seeds for Inspiration and Learning.
6. Mitzvah Card decks are also meaningful and memorable party favors and afikomen gifts. More fascinating than a bottle of wine when going to someone's home for a Shabbat or holiday dinner.
7. Keep a basket of mitzvah cards to draw as folks enter for services, have them draw one and discuss with someone sitting nearby as an ice-breaker and to deepen in awareness of the range of mitzvot.
8. Incorporate into Mitzvah Day events.
Each card has a pomegranate illustration based on the Talmudic saying "Every Jew is as full of mitzvot as a pomegranate is full of seeds."
