    I can tell you why. It is the same reason that they don’t perform a mitzvah of saving another person’s life when they are able to do so; thus, unknowingly sacrificing their own lives to the character trait of greed. It is HaShem who sees if there is an O/U on a person’s soul according to the deeds he/she has done.
    Everyone has witnessed in the previous blog, that a 16 year old girl has spent all of her money to come to Israel alone, no parents, no friends, and with really nothing except the clothes on her back. (ok also a 23 Kg suitcase) No money for clothes, for medical help, for school supplies, for food, for housing for really nothing but for the air that she breathes AND NOBODY except for only a couple of people, wants to give her a dime to live on. Tzvi took her into his home and asks for a little help for her plane ticket but he doesn’t tell the whole story of the expenses he has to give and the help that he needs to help this 16 year old destitute girl.
    We all have this mitzvah to help this girl and should not turn our back on her. If you don’t have money, could you please contact someone who does and then you will also be part of the mitzvah of saving a life? If you don’t have money, could you open up your closets and dust off the new items that you haven’t used and donate it to this girl? If you have had or now have a 16 – 17 year old religious girl, could you donate clothes for her? Also, if you have the following items could you please donate school supplies, computer, printer, jewelry, musical instruments (please no drums and steel rock guitars). Concerning pianos, please tune them first and make sure all the keys are in working order. Whatever you have to help, please give to help save this girl.

    Only because we haven't equated the importance of Torah and Mitzvah with living in Israel as a people.We need to remember that G-d did not want us to live in the midbar but wanted us to live in His land and perform his will there.
