Parashat Bechukotai: Can a Person Give Too Much?

There is no action where kedusha – Holiness – is more manifest than in the act of giving tzedakah. While most people leave it up to their current emotional and financial state in deciding how much to give, Jewish law is very specific as to the limits and boundaries of tzedakah. A key question disputed by the sages and commentaries has been over the issue of whether or not there are upper limits to one’s generosity. Can one give too much? Is it a mitzvah to impoverish oneself by helping others out of poverty?

    I wish to express some thanks to you for bailing me out of such a problem. Just after searching through the the net and meeting notions which are not powerful, I was thinking my life was gone. Existing without the approaches to the issues you’ve fixed as a result of the site is a critical case, as well as the ones which may have adversely damaged my entire career if I hadn’t come across your website. Your good ability and kindness in touching all the stuff was important. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t discovered such a step like this. I’m able to at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this skilled and effective guide. I won’t hesitate to propose your web blog to anybody who will need care about this problem.
