(1/4) Walk in His Ways: Sefer Ahavat Chesed

Why Can’t I Just be a Good Person? – In this Torah class on Sefer Ahavat Chesed, Rabbi Beinish Ginsburg introduces the topic of doing chessed. He begins with a discussion of the haskama, the letter of approbation, which the Netziv wrote for Sefer Ahavat Chesed. In his haskama, the netziv writes about the two fold obligation to do chesed, as it is both the right thing to do, and its a mitzva. He explains that chesed is more than just ‘being a kind person’ according to the standards of general society, because Hashem has much higher standards of Chesed.
