A story about
Tzadik is a Tzadik (righteous person) a holy letter who always does the right thing. The Mitzvah that is most dear to Zadik is the Mitzvah of Tzedakah because Tzadik feels it’s its responsibility to help others in need and caring for one another is one of the most important Mitzvot in the Torah. Because that Mitzvah is so important to Tzadik, Tzadik has a little pouch on top to store Tzedakah coins in, in case it ever comes across a poor person in need or a Tzedakah box (charity box). Tzadik’s pouch is just the right height, (unlike Ayin’s pouch) that it does not have to reach too far down to reach the coins, so it can easily and quickly grab a coin so not to make anyone have to wait or feel uncomfortable to receive the tzedakah. In fact, Tzadik is the only letter with such a pouch, on the other letters, the coins would fall out. The other day when Tzadik was praying in Shul it realised the poor man praying in front of him had tangled Tzizit and Tzadik couldn’t tell whether they were kosher or not. After shul Tzadik went to the Judaica store, took some coins out of its Tzedakah pouch and purchased a new pair of Tzitzit. The following morning in Shul Tzadik presented the man with the new pair of Tzitzit which he wore proudly and was so thankful to Tzadik for.
