What is a Mitzvah?

The Hebrew word "mitzvah" comes from the Hebrew root letters Tzadi, Vav, and Hey, meaning "to command."  A mitzvah is a Commandment from the Torah. It could refer to any one of the 613 Biblical  commandments that a Jew is supposed to observe, such as keeping Shabbat (the Sabbath), but also can refer to any Jewish religious obligation.  In common usage, it also sometimes refers to a kindness, or a 'good deed.'
