Sunday Dollars: 21 Shevat, 5752 • January 26, 1992

Every Sunday, beginning in 1986, thousands of people would come to see the Rebbe, seeking his blessings and advice. The Rebbe gave each person a dollar bill to be given to charity.

I am ashamed to tell but when my husband went with his cousin in the 1990 we were really broke. My husband took the dollar and bought some kind of lottery ticket that made him a winner of another dollar. Then with that dollar he bought again a lottery and won $ 18. With that money he went to buy food for our shabbos. Reply

Re:Give or take I agree. Had I been at one of these dollar giveaways, I'd kept it as a reminder of the the humanity and kindness we humans are capable of. It's nice to know that for every terrorist, murderer and rapist out there, there are a hundred tzaddiks to heal the world of their evil. Reply

Give or take Most people kept the dollar the Rebbe gave them and gave another dollar to charity instead. You can do the same now, it's never too late to do a good deed! Reply

in response to PJ:

keep it as a reminder (where you can see it daily) to keep giving tzedekah, this will accomplish what his intent was when he was giving the dollar. Reply
