Art Raffle Benefits Children’s Program
Mussar and art are two passions of mine, and the marriage of these two passions into MussArt™ in 2009 has allowed me to deepen my personal Mussar practice, help others deepen their Mussar practice and share my gifts in a variety of ways.
This past June, I was inspired to paint a piece titled “Zerizut” (Alacrity) as a means to raise money for the Jewish Values for Everyday Living: Mussar for Children program. It was a joy to paint the piece for such a wonderful cause, and my delight increased when I witnessed how many people supported both me and the program! I raised $1,000 selling $20 raffle tickets.
It felt so good to donate all of the proceeds directly to The Mussar Institute earmarked for Jewish Values for Everyday Living: Mussar for Children. This was a win all the way around: I was able to practice Mussar, practice the art that I love, practice giving, and provide an opportunity for others to practice giving by reaching into their pockets to contribute to a worthwhile cause. As a result, many people are going to be the beneficiaries of this simple act.
Michelle Princenthal, creator of the Mussar for Children program, chose a name at random on June 21 for the painting winner. Congratulations to Lisa Richman, proud new owner of “Zerizut”!
