Hakhel Ahavas Yisrael
NOTE: KEY maintains a list of acts of chessed undertaken by various women around the world. We hope this will serve to inspire additional acts of chessed! You can add to this list if:
(1) you have decided to do an act of chessed; or
(2) someone else did an act of chessed for you, and you would like to describe what that meant to you. We hope this will also inspire others because they will see how the chessed done is valued.
Do you have a chessed project to add to the list, or would you like to list chessed someone else did for you?
We are also expanding our section on the practice of chessed (lovingkindness) and the mitzvah of ve'ahavta l'reacha kmocho (loving one's neighbor/friend). Some suggestions for how to be a good guest are found here.
Looking for opportunities to do chessed or give charity? Access a list of chessed organizations here.
There is a prayer for finding lost objects. Some say to give tsedaka in the denomination of 70, such as 70 cents or 70 dollars, and donate it to a charity for poor scholars in Eretz Yisrael. Then say this prayer.
KEY's efforts on behalf of ahavas yisroel are sponsored by private donors.

Special Note from Hakhel: Forty Days.
Many of us are familiar with the “segula” of davening (or having a shliach daven for you) at the Kosel for forty days in a row in order to obtain a particular yeshua that is needed. In fact, Rabbi Moshe Shternbuch, Shlita (Teshuvos V’Hanhagos 4:61) writes that this segula can be accomplished in any Bais HaMedrash or Bais Haknesses, if you expressly enter to daven for this particular need. The key to success is temidus (consistency and constancy) in a Makom Kadosh.
