DVAR TORAH

    

Do acts of kindness without expecting anything in return

"AND YOU SHALL COMMAND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL THAT THEY BRING TO YOU PURE OLIVE OIL BEATEN FOR THE LIGHT TO CAUSE THE LAMP TO BURN ALWAYS."

(Shmos 27:20)

     The Midrash comments on this verse that the Almighty does not really need the light but you should nonetheless make a light for Him just as He makes light for you. The Midrash gives the analogy of a blind person and a person who could see who were walking together. The person with sight led the blind person the entire way. When they came to their destination, the sighted person told the blind person to make a light. "I want you to do this," he said, "so you will not feel a debt of gratitude for all that I have done for you. Now you have done something for me in return."

     Rabbi Yeruchem Levovitz commented that from here we see what total kindness is. There are many ulterior motives a person can have when he does favors for others. However, the ultimate in doing kindness is to do it without any expectations for something in return. This Midrash should be our guide when we do a favor for another person. Our attitude should be totally to help someone and not to expect even gratitude in return.

     That is one of the reasons that accompanying the dead is such a big Mitzvah. One knows that he is taking out time from his day to be with the Niftar and he will receive nothing in return. However, one does not need to wait until someone passes to perform a Chased Shel Emet (true kindness without expecting anything in return). Let us emulate Hashem and take this attitude of true kindness with our spouse and our friends. Don’t ask your spouse what will you do for me or what have you done for me lately just help out because that is true Chesed.

     Mordechai makes a clear statement to Esther. “If you choose to be silence the salvation for the Jewish nation will come from elsewhere. You see from Mordechai's statement how important it is to step up to the plate when it comes to Chesed or Mitzvot. If you don't do it someone will and you will lose out.

     Our goal should always be to do Chesed for the sake of doing acts of kindness not for any other reason.

Wishing everyone a Shabbat Shalom from the Perelson Mishpacha.

NEW TOPIC

 The Laws of Partnerships & Corporations Part 1

Some of the questions to be discussed:

1- Can one ever be compelled to chip in and join a partnership if there is a communal need?

2-Is it permitted to own shares in a company that sells chometz on Pesach or a bank that lends money with interest?

3-If a partnership is created in a way that is not according to halacha, but is in accordance with common custom or legal norms, is that enough?

4-If two people want to enter a business partnership together, what do they have to do to ensure the partnership is halachically binding

 

 

PESACH - begins with Ma-os Chittin (Matzo Fund) contributions made out to the Torah Fund which will, in turn, respond to the many requests from Israel and from individuals in need in New York City. Our response will help them buy the necessities for their own Pesach observance.
