Transferring the Merit of Mitzvot

Transferring the Merit of Mitzvot
We’ve all heard someone say, ‘I’m giving a shiur’ or ‘I’m giving tzedakah’ for the refuah of so and so. We’ve also heard people state they are saying Tehilim or Kaddish in the memory of someone. Can we actually fulfill a mitzvah in order to influence an outcome? Can we actually fulfill a mitzvah to benefit the deceased? Join Rabbi Dovid Fink and explore the topic of whether you can transfer the merit of your mitzvot to someone else.
