  1. whats his money worth if it just sits?

    i.e. if a yid wants to invest, dont invest in Madoff, madoff got mad & fell off. if you want to invest then invest in Tzedaka (charity) its an eternal investment & can’t go bad & you don’t need to call wall street everyday, you know it went up in value.

    Whats a persons money worth in the olam Haemes? (true/next world) its not even worth counterfeit, its worthless, (what are your children going to do with it to help you? give money l’zecher nishmas to tzedaka?)

    BOTTOM LINE? give it away in this world to tzedaka & then you keep it forever & take it with you to the olam Haemes.

    Fortune am i that i learnt this many years before i retired. & i hope you become fortunate too

  2. Bl$$mberg wasted his money & his life by forfeiting the oppertunity to give Tzedaka to Torah worthy causes! He gave his money to support all politicians who supported same gender marriage! This angered Hashem tremendously! To his credit, he did plant a tree in Israel! Donald Trump, who is not Jewish, gave a velt of money to Torah worthy causes. I know this for a fact because I’m involved with a particular Torah Org that he is a board member of. He gave millions of dollars from his own pocket to the Organization. There are rightous Goyim.
