Q: Why do some people say לשם יחוד קודשא בריך הוא before doing a mitzvah?
Q:You said earlier (see yesterday’s Q&A)that one only gets reward for doing a mitzvah if there is intention added to the act. Can you discuss how that fits with what Chazal tell us that if you lose some money and a poor man finds it so you get reward for tzedaka.
Q:Why does a person receive reward in the afterlife for doing mitzvos without any kavanah, without any intention? According to what you said tonight, the reward in the Next World is dependent primarily on a person’s thoughts?
