Is there a mitzvah to seek converts?


"The court blesses 'On the immersion of converts' before a [minor] convert's immersion, just as we bless before performing any other mitzvah.

"If one will ask where the court was instructed in this mitzvah, it is from [Avraham and Sarah], 'The lives they created [by teaching them Jewish beliefs] in Charan.'"

(Raavad, Baalei haNefesh, end of Shaar haTevilah)

Have a great day,
