Practice Corner

Tzedakah BoxThe Hebrew word for justice is tzedek and for charity is tzedakah. This shared root reveals that the essence of charity, in the Jewish view, is that it is not acting out of benevolence but justice. Cultivating this trait would mean then to give generously to others with the mental intention that it is not out of pity but a matter of justice to support those in need.
