How do we carry out the command "Make Me a sanctuary" in a way that even the mundane aspects of a Jew's life will be holy?
One suggestion is for every Jew, man, woman or child to carry out the good custom of celebrating their birthday in a manner that connects it with Torah and mitzvos.
There is a golden opportunity on a birthday to influence a person to increased Torah and mitzvos, for it is a time when one's mazal is strong.
The suggestion is directed to everyone, even small children, and their parents should explain to them that on their birthdays there should be a renewal of all aspects of good and holiness.
A happy celebration should be organized for the child when he and his friends will joyously accept good resolutions in Torah and mitzvos.
Use the birthday as a time to increase goodness and holiness in Torah and mitzvos.
We are at the close of the diaspora and we must finish the remaining steps of purification of the mundane.
A birthday is a plain day - no holiday - yet it is a day in which one's "fortune ascends."
A Jew's inner spirituality has the power to eclipse his mundanity and he becomes com pletely nullified (attached) to the Holy One, Blessed be He.
May this proposal be accepted among the Jewish people - young and old - to celebrate individual birthdays by making joyous parties in a manner that will enhance and increase Torah and mitzvos.
