Not long ago, we each purchased a Lulav and Etrog set for Sukkos for a tidy sum. A pair of Tefillin is even more costly, and to send a child to a Jewish school you need to open a savings account. Why must things be this way?
If G-d wants our Mitzvot, why does He place obstacles in our path? Is there meaning to our efforts, or are they just a conduit to success?
And how does a single deed make you a partner with G-d?
