The Neshamah Project

The Neshamah Project is a wonderful and meaningful new organization.

You may have seen the book we are distributing: The Neshamah Should Have an Aliyah – What you can do in memory of a departed loved one. This new book stands at the forefront of our mission, which is both simple and profound: To help people perform mitzvos in memory of loved ones or friends who have passed away.

Very often, family and friends wish they could do something, anything, when someone passes away – something that would help keep their memory of that person fresh, something that would keep his legacy alive. Yet all too often these goals are not realized because they simply do not know where to start or what to do. When a loved one passes away, many people are inspired to do good deeds – perhaps more than at any other time in their lives.

But they just don’t know where to turn.

The Neshamah Project was created to fill this void. We help people accomplish personal Mitzvah projects – big or small – l’zecher nishmas those who have passed away.

Read a few pages of this remarkable book and we guarantee that you will be inspired – inspired to do a mitzvah yourself and inspired to give the book to someone else, so they too can start a mitzvah project on behalf of a loved one. As you will see, everyone who reads it is moved to give it to someone they know.

  1. A longtime friend of mine from “before” lost her father. I knew her father from when we were all kids in fourth grade, which was quite a while ago. Say about forty years. He was a very nice man who always tried to do kindnesses for other people. Before his yahrzeit, when I call my longtime friend to remind her (which she greatly appreciates) I tell her to do a small act of kindness for someone in her father’s memory on that day and to specifically think, “This is in memory of my father.”

  2. Even non-religious Jews react very positively to the idea of doing a “good deed” in the memory of a loved departed one. In fact, even among non-Jews family members find comfort in having good deeds done in the memory of the departed. For example, funds for a neighborhood playground might be raised and then it might be named in memory of someone who dedicated his/her life to working with troubled teens. Of course, what constitutes an aliya for a Yiddishe neshama may be very different from what is deemed a proper memorial in the outside world.
