The word Tzdakah derives from the Hebrew word Tzedek and means justice or what is right.
In the Torah the word Tzdakah is also used to mean righteousness‚ and that requires devotion to helping the needy and we are told that reaching out to those in need is essential and requested of each of us.
The Talmud states that the world rests on three thing; Torah‚ service to G-d‚ and last but not least deeds of kindness‚ Tzdakah.
It is a Mitzvah‚ Moral obligation‚ that Jews should give at least ten percent of their income to charity as stated in Deuteronomy 26:12. The Mitzvah to giving charity in Jewish law and tradition is viewed as an involuntary form of self'-taxation
to comply with this command to give Tzedakah many traditional Jewish homes have a box for collecting the funds for the poor. The Tzdakah box is a constant reminder of this good deed.
Giving Tzedakah‚ charity‚ is an integral part of Jewish living.
There are many forms of righteous deeds‚ but giving charity to those in need is the most important one. Along the generations many Jewish artists designed boxes where money could be saved for later use and decorated beautifully. The Tzedakah boxes can be found in many materials like metal‚ wood‚ ceramic‚ and glass. In our Tzedakah box section you will find a great selection of Tzedakah boxes that will make great gifts for many occasions.
