Parshios Behar & Bechukosai

Charity and Empathy

By Rabbi Chaim Flom

"Isn't it hard being a psychiatrist? Hearing all those people's problems."

"It's no big deal. I don't really care about the people and the pay is great."

"And if your brother becomes poor...you must help him...that he may live with you (Hebrew 'imoch')." (Vayikra 25:35) Rav Aharon Walkin, zt"l, explains that "imoch" has the connotation of being concerned for him, not merely handing him money.

Not only do you have to put your money where your mouth is, but you have to put your heart there too!!

Have a great Shabbos !!

Rabbi Chaim Flom
