Horeb #7: Tzedaka and Gemilus Chasadim Part 2 VeHeye Bracha, Ch. 88

“The concept of berachah, blessing, is the theme underlying all of a Jew’s thinking. It is the idea which every Jew should convert into a reality, and the entire Torah exists only to teach us the way in which we can and should bless Hashem. Indeed, the word baruch, from which the noun berachah is derived, encompasses the entire mission of the life of the Jew.”
