Building a Home for the Elderly

Question

Dear Rabbi, in our country many people torture their parents mentally or physically and throw them beside road or in an old people’s home. There are many old people whose children never come to visit them and do not give them any money. I want to help them by making a home for them and provide their basic needs. Will Hashem help me fulfill my plan?

  1. Even though your aspirations are truly noble and selfless, there never any guarantees that God will bless someone with material success. That means that if a person is prepared to embark on a business venture only if he feels that God has blessed him with a guaranteed successful outcome, he might be better off not beginning, as one can never be sure.

    But I wish you all the blessings that are written in the Torah if you decide to embark on this lofty project of great kindness!
