Tzedakah

Offline Source Sheet

The evyon within our gates: sources for poverty in Tanach.
This source sheet explores Judaism's view on food aid in the lens of the holiday of Shavuot
This lesson plan will help students think about and articulate how they decide where to give tzedakah. Using an interactive game, debate and Jewish text, this lesson highlights the complexity of allocating tzedakah and the necessity of making difficult decisions among competing priorities. Got Gelt? also includes an at-home component that enables students to apply their learning to actual giving as they and their families designate a night of Chanukah to give tzedakah. Got Gelt? lays the groundwork for students and their families to participate in Where Do You Give? Reimagining Tzedakah for the 21st Century, an initiative featuring a national design competition, online interactive media and educational resources that engages the Jewish community in critical questions about where we give, to whom and why.
