Uman and the Tzaddik


There is an amazing concept in Judaism, one which radically contradicts the beliefs of much of the world. That is, when a person performs a mitzva simply because it is commanded by God, the merit is greater than for one who performs a mitzva out of other motives, instead—even out of the kindness of one’s heart.

Ideally, we do mitzvot and good deeds not only because we are commanded to, but because we love God and have the kind of relationship with Him that makes us want to fulfill his will.

Then there is Pesach.
