Good for you
In Ki Tetze, we are given many mitzvot to do -- 613, actually. What's a mitzvah? A commandment to do a good deed, or to follow directions to perform a certain ritual. As a Jew, it is important to do both. We become role models for the world in our acts of charity, and we remember who we are and where we came from through our ritual.
As the 2004 Olympics draw to a close, it is our hope that the whole world will remember the 11 Israeli athletes who died during the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany. They were kidnapped and killed by a Palestinian group called Black September.
