"The world is built with kindness," King David wrote in Psalm 89. And he should know. He was the great-grandson of Ruth, the Jewish convert who is known as the embodiment of kindness--and whose story we read on the holiday of Shavuos.
The Chassidic masters also turned performing acts of kindness into a fine art. In these 15 tales they show us the way to build a world of kindness for ourselves.
