Parsha of the Week: 
Chayei Sarah: Genesis 23:1-25:18

Judaism of the Week: Gemilut Hasadim

"Acts of Kindness" as this mitzvah is often referred to has a deeper meaning:

"The dictionary meaning of the root g-m-l that is most supported by Talmudic usage is reciprocal acts. Gemilut signals that these are acts done in the context of a relationship with a built-in notion of benefit or compensation in return for the act. This immediately differentiates our tradition from those that emphasize the selflessness of service. The Talmud supports this, stating that the reward for service is in this world, not in the world to come (Shabbat 127a). Service can and should be valuable in some way to the person engaged in it."
