Jewish Entrepreneurs: Part 2: Accounts Charitable

An address to the supporters of the Machne Israel Development Fund G-d’s foremost commandment is to give charity. Each of you no doubt maintains a separate account for charity, so that you will not have to stop and ponder from which account to write the check when you are approached for a donation.

An address to the supporters of the Machne Israel Development Fund

G-d’s foremost commandment is to give charity. Each of you no doubt maintains a separate account for charity, so that you will not have to stop and ponder from which account to write the check when you are approached for a donation. And your secretary certainly knows that when he is appraoched for a donation, he needn’t ask you how much to write the check for, because he knows that his boss is a person whose greatest joy comes from giving charity above and beyond all limit.

Whatever you estimate to give to charity on a given year, when you “ascend” to the Torah on Rosh Hashanah, your contribution plans “ascend” as well. On the Second Day of Rosh Hashanah you “ascend” again. And then a third time on Tzom Gedaliah. Being that you’re a good businessman you show that you can strike a deal no less profitable than anyone else, especially in matters of charity.
