Jews are supposed to follow 613 mitzvot (commandments from God). Some make sense, while others seem antiquated and irrelevant. For an art installation to debut at DAWN, a special event for the grand opening of the San Francisco Contemporary Jewish Museum, we'll be creating an interactive environment involving the mitzvot and your creative reinterpretations.

GET STARTED:

  • STEP 1: Select a Mitzvah to Remix.
  • STEP 2: Ponder and Submit your new Mitzvah.
  • STEP 3: See recent remixes others have submitted.


Step 3: Recent Remixes

Review recent Mitzvot that others have submitted.

‘; foreach($rss->items as $rssItem) { //print ‘#’. substr($rssItem['link'], 33) .’ ‘. $rssItem['title'] .’ ‘; $pieces = explode(‘- a remix of Mitzvah’, $rssItem['title']); $pieces2 = explode(‘ by ‘, $pieces[1]); $output .= ‘
Mitzvah ‘ . $pieces2[0] .’ by ‘. $pieces2[1] .’
‘. $pieces[0] .’

‘; } $output .= ‘

Step 2: Submit
