Middah of the Month of Nisan: Compassion

Compassion is the ability to emotionally relate to the condition of another and to respond with kindness and concern. It is not judgmental, it does not point fingers.  It seeks to raise another person’s soul and make life easier to bear.”   Riverton Mussar

 “Compassion is to sense another person’s existence, understand his thinking and feelings, connect to him, and to realize that the connection itself is the goal.” Getting to Know Your Soul, Rabbi Isamar Schwartz

Practice:

* Listen to a friend or family member without judgment or advice.

* Try to understand someone whose point of view is different from yours.
