More Blessed to Give:
Rebbe Nachman on Charity
by Chaim Kramer
Charity truly makes the world go round. Hundreds of billions of dollars are collected annually by hospitals, medical research centers, educational institutions, social welfare organizations, environmental groups and disaster-relief agencies, to name just a few. Not a day goes by without some kind of street solicitation. Rarely does a week go by without an individual or organization knocking on the door, calling on the telephone or pleading by e-mail, asking us to get involved.
Who really benefits from all this charity? If you said the recipient, try again.
More Blessed To Give shines a revealing light on the real beneficiary of charity: the giver. Based on the teachings of Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, this book explores the benefits, blessings and spiritual rectifications earned by every charitable donor. Each act of charity also has global repercussions, sending peace, justice and spiritual tranquility into every corner of creation.
Who you give to is even more important than what you give. Rebbe Nachman offers practical tips for prioritizing your donations and steering clear of unworthy causes.
So the next time someone holds out his hand, extend your hand, too. Giving charity doesn’t mean giving up your hard-earned funds – it means increasing your wealth, your happiness and your future success. Talk about making your money work for you!
