Escort guests; accompany your guests to the door. It is a big mitzvah to escort guests; this is said to be greater than anything. Abraham, the forefather of the Jewish people, is the finest example. He fed passersby, gave them something to drink, and escorted them to where they were going. Receiving guests is considered more precious than receiving the holy spirit. And escorting guests is even greater than that. Escort your guests on their journey. Some escort their guests to the door, others to the elevator or down to the street. A few go with them to get transportation and a very few even escort their guests all the way home.
