Disc 141, Program 564

Event Date: 12 Tammuz 5741 - July 14, 1981

Long before his bar mitzvah, the Previous Rebbe was already preoccupied with doing acts of kindness. At age eleven he established a free-loan fund, allowing him to help the needy in a dignified manner.

He did this with money that he earned from his father by studying Mishnah by heart.

The education he received from a young age increased his desire to help others, and even as a child he was prepared to pay a high price for his ideals, as the story of his first imprisonment relates.
