The definition of Gemilut Chasadim


"Before anything one must know that the definition of 'Gemilut Chasadim' (generosity) is not specifically a matter of lending money, as some people think. Rather, it applies to any benevolent act, in which a person acts generously and benefits another person without receiving anything in return."

(R' Yisrael Meir Kagan, Ahavat Chesed, Introduction)

Have a great day,
