Tanya: For example, (p. 331)...attributes at all." (p. 333).

(The effect of) each particular mitzva-act is called forth by (doing) those (other) mitzva-acts which are Makif - general and all- encompassing in nature.

The mitzva of Tzedaka, for example, is one of those all - encompassing - makif Mitzvot, as evident from the reference to all mitzvot by the term "Tzedaka."

For this reason it is most appropriate to give a coin to Tzedaka before performing any Mitzva. This has the effect of bringing the general Makif-aura into the P'nimi, the "inner aspect," (the particular Mitzva).

Nonetheless, this type of Makif is a "close aura," whereas the Makif of Torah [1] is a "distant aura," whose effect is superior.



  1. (Back to text) The meaning here is probably "Torah-study" which, like Tzedaka, is a Makif-mitzva.

    (A host of terms can be used to translate Makif, but in this context we suggest:

    • "All-encompassing,"
    • "all-comprehensive,"
    • "all-inclusive,"
    • "general")

    A suggested explanation: When a particular mitzva is studied as part of Torah-learning, the effect of that Torah-study on the mitzva is superior to the effect engendered by giving Tzedaka prior to the mitzva.

    For Torah is a more distant (i.e., higher) Makif - relative to the particular mitzva - this is Tzedaka. Viz. Sefer Hamaamarim Basi Legani p. 194:5 (end).
