Question: I have already been to a Kabbalah convention. Would it be correct if instead of going there myself, I give my friend an opportunity to go by supporting him financially?
Answer: If a person is at the level of love of others “Love another as you love yourself,” then he must (and he desires!) to give the other his only “pillow,” that is, to send his friend to the congress. If neither of you go to the congress, then it is the quality of Sodom (Sodomite Rule). However, if you are the only one going, you are the “wicked.” But this is at the level of “love for another.”
Therefore, to act correctly means to act according to your level or “according to the law of Halakha” (the law), where “Halakha” derives from the word “Alicha,” movement (toward the goal). In other words, this means correct advancement, correct action. In your case, you should go, the one who has the funds; otherwise, you will instill hatred between you and your friend.
