Perhaps nothing has been as divisive as the notion that we are a people of “religion.” We are a single soul radiating into many bodies, bonding them into one unified soul. We are one big caring family where we each love each other as we do ourselves. When we are facing rough times or know those that are, our hands are held or we hold anothers. Where one experiences good fortune, we all celebrate. Where there is no shame for needing, only for not asking.
Charitable acts are those unconditional acts we perform to restore a person’s dignity; provide a meal, employment, housing, clothing, medical care, transportation and more. Judaism makes clear that the recipient elevates the donor for without need, our good fortune would have no purpose. We are responsible, one to the other.
My prayer for you today is that you will dedicate yourself and your children to restoring those in need.
