What Are Acts of Kindness

We are commanded to do acts of kindness (chesed), which means helping someone by doing an action that that person cannot do (or has difficulty doing) for him/herself.
Example
  • Visiting sick people;
  • Opening a window for a crippled or weak person;
  • Giving charity;
  • Teaching non-religious Jews about Judaism;
  • Finding marriage partners for single people.
