Blue and white tzadakah tin box for the Jewish Blind Society

Tzedakah is the Hebrew word for charity and justice. Helping others is seen as an act of generosity and justice in Judaism. Tzedakah is an obligation Jewish people have with God to help bring fairness to the world. There are many different forms of tzedakah. The most common form of tzedakah is giving money to people who are less fortunate and to the communities that take care of them. One of the most important forms is showing kindness and respect towards others. Doing mitzvahs (good deeds) such as visiting the elderly, helping someone who is sick, and volunteering are all forms of tzedakah. Download this resource to help you think about forms of tzedakah that you might have done in your own life.
