What Good Jews Are About

Beautiful video. I loved it. It was clearly all set up by Hashem that the boy should have left the envelope on the walkway of exactly the man who most needed it and then the man at the school should give the father the money. Also, I love that the father didn't reprimand his son for "losing" the envelope.

Misdirected loot ...

B”H If this doesn’t make one breakdown in tearful gratitude that such souls exist even during the worst of times, we might have lost more than our temporary loss of faith in our faulty national Government. The appeals arrive regularly, for an additional, or earlier delivery of regularly-promised donations; reaching to vulnerable family members to aid and provide needed succor, or simply to take stock of the people who think we are. Let’s care, empathize, share more, for, in the final analysis, more than the accumulated lucre, is the kindnesses we are known by! With fraternal affection, Asher ???????❤️
