This man is standing in middle of the shuk, in Machane Yehuda holding up a sign. Usually, people with signs ask for charity. This man however, asked for for Ahavat Chinam- to love your fellow Jew.


Translation of the sign:

בורא עולם אומר - 


The creator of the world (Hashem) says:


״לְמַעַן אַחַי וְרֵעָי אֲדַבְּרָה נָּא שָׁלוֹם בָּךְ" -


For the sake of my brothers and friends, I shall say: Peace be within you


"לְמַעַן בֵּית ה׳ אֱלֹקינוּ אֲבַקְשָׁה טוֹב לָךְ״ - 


For the sake of the House of the Lord, our God, I will seek your good


״ה׳ עֹז לְעַמּוֹ יִתֵּן ה׳ יְבָרֵךְ אֶת עַמּוֹ בַשָּׁלוֹם״ -


May the Lord give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace



And then:


מבקש אהבת חינם - לא צדקה!
I'm asking for Ahavat Chinam, not tzedaka!
