"Magic Moments" Of Opportunity
To Do Chessed
Believe it or not,
Hashem might present you with your greatest
opportunities to do acts of chessed when you
are least prepared - when you must seize
the moment or it will be lost forever.
- This book is a collection of true, riveting short
stories about how people from all walks of life,
in different locations and times, reacted to such
"magic moments of opportunity to do chessed
in the most unexpected places - at a wedding.
in a mall, while sitting shivah, in a supermarket,
riding in a taxi, and in many other venues.
- This life-changing book makes you realize that it is
imperative to ask, in every situation you find your-
self: "Why did Hashem put me in this very place at
this very time? What chessed does Hashem expect
me to do at this exact moment? These stories will
train you to become what the author calls an obser-
vant Jew, someone constantly on the alert for magic
moments of opportunity to do chessed.
- This concept is learned from the mitzvah regarding a
bird's nest (kan tzipor), popularly known as shiluach
ha-kan. The mitzvah of shooing away the mother
bird before taking her eggs or nestlings cannot be
orchestrated, but happens "Ki yikarei kan tripor
lefanecha ba-derech" (Devarim 22:6) - unexpectedly,
when we go about our normal daily activities - and
earns blessings and long life.
- So treat yourself to a great read, be inspired by these
kan-tzipor-moment stories, grab such moments for
yourself and look forward to your own incredible
- "It takes someone like Steve Savitsky to capture
the essence of Kan Tzipor, a Torah gem that was
waiting to be unearthed. Everyone has their own
kan tzipor moments. Reading this book will help
you make the most of them."
