The Mitzvah of Tzitzit
The Mitzvah of Tzitzit has to be one of my favorites.
"Speak to the Children of Israel and say to them that they shall make themselves tzitzit on the corners of their garments, throughout their generations and they shall place upon the tzitzit of each corner a thread of blue wool. These shall be your tzitzit, and when you see them, you shall remember all of God's commandments so as to keep them. You will then not stray after your heart and eyes after which have lead you to immorality. You will thus remember and keep all My commandments, and be holy to your God."Bamidbar (Numbers) 15:38-40
I find this to be 100% true. When I'm wearing Tzitzit and I especially when they arent tucked into my pants, I feel like I'm properly in-line so to speak. Tzitzit do remind me of G-d, and I feel more comfortable when I'm wearing them.
What really strikes me about this Mitzvah is that it's not something we HAVE to do anymore. Way back when in the old days, they had a real good fashion sense. They wore 4 cornered garb's instead of shirts. These days we don't have any cornered garments and are therefore not required to where Tzitzit, however we have created 4 cornered garments to where under our shirts so that we can fulfill G-ds commandment. That seems really cool to me.

Just as long as you don't go on thinking the rebbe is gonna resurrect and bring moshiach.
