Accepting tzedakah


"If people give a person tzedakah because he studies Torah or is involved in mitzvot and good deeds, he should not use it; he should give it to someone who is as great as he, and involved in Torah and mitzvot as he is.

"However, if they say, ‘We are giving it to you on condition that you will not give it to anyone else,’ then he may not even give it to a greater person, much less a lesser person."

(Sefer Chasidim 329)

Have a great day,
