Israeli Tzedakah Mall

Very often tzedakah is translated as "charity," but tzedakah is much more.

The literal meaning of the Hebrew word is righteousness or justice. For Jews, tzedakah is not merely a gesture of kindness, but an act of justice.

Moses Maimonides, the great Torah Scholar and Philosopher (1135-1204) delineated eight levels of tzedakah, they are listed below in ascending order. You have an opportunity to assist these important organizations in their vital mission. They need your help NOW!

  1. Giving begrudgingly
  2. Giving less that you should, but giving it cheerfully
  3. Giving after being asked
  4. Giving before being asked
  5. Giving when you do not know the recipient's identity, but the recipient knows your identity
  6. Giving when you know the recipient's identity, but the recipient doesn't know your identity
  7. Giving when neither party knows the other's identity
  8. Enabling the recipient to become self-reliant
