Charity

The Charity Campaign
We live in a time when many Jews – due to no fault of their own – are not aware of Judaism. Therefore, a campaign was launched to ensure that every Jewish home should have a charity box. In this way, even a person uneducated in Judaism who encounters this unfamiliar object will ask what it is about. This will lead him to discover the commandment of charity, which, in turn, will lead him to fulfill many more Mitzvos.
The Myth of Charity
Do not be misled by the legendary philanthropy of the Jews, by their saturation of social and humanitarian movements, by their invention of the pushka, the meshulach and the UJA. Jews do not practice charity, and the concept is virtually nonexistent in Jewish tradition.
