Helping Others

via Lma’an Yishme’u

The Baal Shem Tov explained the words of Chazal, "Torah learning which is not accompanied by work - will become invalid." A person's learning must bring him to help another Yid, otherwise his learning is deficient.

The Rebbe explained why helping another Yid is described as "work". Just as a businessman does not wait at home for others to approach him, but opens his store in a busy location, hangs a sign and tries his best to convince others of his product, so, too, a Yid must actively pursue opportunities to help another Yid.

(סה"ש ת"ש ע' 115, לקו"ש ח"א ע' 260)
