Picture of the Day: Random Act of Kindness

A CrownHeights.info reader captured this moving photo today of a Bochur in 770 helping an elderly man tie his shoelaces.

    When I saw the picture before I saw the comments I thought His mother should be proud of him.

    If he weren’t Jewish, would it be OK to let him trip over his shoelaces? Of course not! Kindness is ALWAYS a mitzvah, as this young bochur clearly demonstrates by his actions. Yes, his mother should be proud of him, and so should all of us!

    Many of them people collecting money in 770 are not jewish. He tells people his name is Mendel and this makes him jewish? I am not suggesting that one should not help him with his shoes, heaven forbid. Nor am I suggesting to be rude to anyone. I am bothered however that so much money goes to these people that are goyim and not helping our community. Many of these people come to 770 and put on kipas and all of a sudden they are jewish. I have een people putting on tefillin on with some of these people. They are Jewish to get money.

    Rz, don’t be unkind. If someone needs money so badly that he’s willing to come into 770 as an impersonator, then by all means let’s help him.
