Last Friday for our mitzvah trip,We went to a Jewish cemetery and we cleaned peoples graves. By doing that we observed the mitzvah of Kavod Ha-Meit. Kavod Ha-Meit is the mitzvah of honoring the dead. This was the first time this year we went there. We cleaned the graves by using gloves and filling buckets with water, soap, bleach, and detergent.
This whole experience was important for a few reasons. The first reason it was important was because we are following an important mitzvah of honoring the dead. The second reason this is important is because we are doing stuff no one else does. Last reason is that it makes people happy.
If I had to choose the most meaningful part I would choose the part when the drivers would send pictures of us cleaning there family members graves because all of them said thank you very much.
