Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “God’s “right arm.””

The attribute of kindness is, as it were, God’s right arm.

God’s hand gives everything, but sometimes it does so via human hands.

When a person gives charity with the intent to fulfill God’s will, he serves as an instrument via which the quality of divine kindness gives charity.

At that moment, he is God’s “right arm.”

He is a chariot for divine kindness, a resting place for God to dwell.
