1. Jewish unity is strengthened by being one with G‑d and with Torah. In ancient times the pilgrimage was to Yerushalayim, now it is to centers of Torah and prayer. Unity gives the power to return home and continue to unite all Jews in all places. Tzedakah is an expression of Jewish love and unity.
2. Education is similar to dedication — in both there is an increase in benevolence. On the bar mitzvah day the “inner sanctuary” is dedicated. Before prayer we unify with all Jews, consequently, everything is done with Ahavas Yisrael. Study Psalm 14 in Tehillim.
3. Every wedding reminds us of the “marriage” of the Holy One, Blessed be He, and the Jewish people. Each couple brings G‑dliness into their home. Tzedakah must be a foundation upon which the home is built. All the tzedakah should collectively bring Mashiach.
