My Mitzvah

The Chofetz Chaim zt’l was serving and caring for a guest who said, “I can take care of it myself. You don’t have to do this for me.”

“Really?” the Chofetz Chaim replied, “and will you also wear my tefillin for me tomorrow?”

Implying that since this was his mitzvah of Hachnasas Orchim, he wanted to perform the mitzvah properly. ~ R’ Elimelech Biderman Shlita

Covering the Challahs

According to halacha, if you have both bread and wine in front of you, the Hamotzi over the bread comes first.  However, our Sages ruled that on Shabbos, Kiddush on the wine should come first.  To avoid shaming the challahs, we cover them.

Now imagine, we are told to cover the lifeless challahs so as not to cause them embarrassment.  How much more so must one make sure not to embarrass or hurt the feelings of others.
