214 - RETURNING FOR A FORGOTTEN SHEAF


Deuteronomy 24:19 -- “When you reap your harvest in your field, and forget a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.”
Leviticus 19:10 -- “And you shall not glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather every grape of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger: I am the LORD your God.”

From the law of forgotten produce the sages draw the lesson that the blessings of charity attend upon the donor, even though the charity was not given intentionally. Thus: “If a coin falls out of one’s hand and a poor man finds it and supports himself by it, one will be blessed on that account.”*

* Deut. XXIV, 19, Sifre
