11th Day of Elul: Compassion

Elul, 11th day, 31 August 2020. Can we learn to be more compassionate and caring? "The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion." Psalm 103:13
Humble Compassion
There is compassion that feeds the ego and there is compassion that humbles it.

"We become like God and are drawn closer to God: deepening our capacity for caring, for being present and attentive to the needs of others — while setting our own needs aside, we seek to become more like God." Rabbi Yoel Kahn
