Sarasota Liberal Yeshiva: Tzedakah (Charity/Philanthropy/Fundraising)
One of the most-widely observed mitzvot (biblical commandments) in contemporary times is the giving of charity. Jews, many of whom are not so observant of ritual and religious practices, engage widely in the act of philanthropy. Commonly referred to as tzedakah, practically everyone engages in charitable acts simply as a societal norm without truly knowing the origins of philanthropy, how it has professionalized today and administered in every community.
