One of the basic principles of Judaism is to look for opportunities to practice loving-kindness toward others. When we find ourselves in the position to help someone else out, we must take advantage of it because this is why Hashem put us in this place at this time.

Kan Tzipor

The mitzvah of kan tzipor (bird’s nest) relates to how we treat a mother bird when we want to take the eggs out of her nest. Stephen J. Savitsky has written a book called Kan Tzipor, in which he expands this mitzvah to include any situation in which you are uniquely positioned to perform an act of chesed. In this presentation, Stephen tells the story of a last-minute business trip which transformed into an opportunity to perform an act of loving-kindness and a great Kiddush Hashem.
