Proverbs 28:27
2 ב
נוֹתֵן לָרָשׁ אֵין מַחְסוֹר וּמַעְלִים עֵינָיו רַב מְאֵרוֹת:
One who gives to the poor will not be in want, but one who shuts one's eyes will be roundly cursed. [JPS translation edited for gender neutrality]

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. How can giving tzedakah benefit the giver?

2. How can we resist the temptation to shut our eyes? Are there times when it is necessary?
