Remix the mitzvot

Ben Brown and Ari Y Kelman are up to something fun over at their new (RE)VELATION project:

There are 613 mitzvot (commandments from God) that all Jews are supposed to follow. Some of them are easy to understand and apply to modern day life, while others seem antiquated and irrelevant. We invite you to ponder the 613 rules and to submit your own (re)interpretation of what they mean to us today.

Just as a sampling, here are a few of the site’s most recent submissions:
Don’t shit in your own backyard.

Get in on it.
