Do Not Ignore A Needy Person

This deed is based on the verse (Deut. 15:8) "But you shall open your hand wide." The Hebrew word "tzedaka" comes from the root tzedek - "justice" and "righteous." We are commanded to give generously to those in need. All that we own is through G-d's generosity. Therefore, it is only right and proper to support others less fortunate than we are. Even a poor person is obligated to give charity, even if only a small amount.
It is a prohibition to ignore a needy person

This deed is based on the verse (Deut. 15:7) "Do not harden your heart nor shut your hand from your poor brother." G-d wants us to share what we have and give charity generously. Be cautious not to ignore a needy person.

A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money
