She presents each mitzvah as a short vignette, and the myriad forms they take-from helping the elderly to donating to good causes to baking and collecting food for others-highlight the many ways in which one person can touch the lives of others. As she pursues her quest, Cohen finds that her life is improved by these small acts-that every time she goes out of her way to do something good for someone else, she enhances her own well-being.More than a touching story of a daughter's love for her father, 1,000 Mitzvahs is a testament to the transformational power of kindness, and a call to arms for those who would like to follow in Cohen's footsteps with their own mitzvahs-no matter how large or how small.
