Jewish Response to Hunger
A gift opens the way for the giver and ushers him into the presence of the great. (Proverbs 18:16)
You open wide your hand and satisfy the hunger of every living thing. (Psalm 145:16)
When you are asked in the world to come, "What was your work?" and you answer, "I fed the hungry," You will be told, "This is the gate to the Lord, enter into it, you who have fed the hungry." (Midrash Psalms 118:17)
