Why should I observe Jewish rituals if I don't believe in G-d?
by Mrs. Sarah Levi
That's precisely why--because you're Jewish.
Most people will respond: "commandment!" when you ask them "What does the word 'Mitzvah' mean?" But the Hebrew word "mitzvah" means "connection" too. The commands we received from G-d are a means to connect to G-d, as well as to the spirituality within us.

According to Kabbalah, the Jewish soul is comprised of 613 powers that correspond to the 613 mitzvahs. Every mitzvah you do activates a corresponding soul-power.
In other words, when you do a mitzvah, you become conscious of the subconscious spiritual connection you have with the Divine.
When you do a mitzvah, you do not become a believer in G-d--you simply manifest a condition that is already there.
In conclusion, if you are Jewish and (think that you) do not believe in G-d, that is a good reason to do a mitzvah. It will help you realize who you really are and what you truly believe.
