Tzedakah: Conversations about the Tradition of Tzedakah – charity and justice 

with Rabbi Steven Sager


How do we give?

What are the benefits or drawbacks of giving anonymously,  or giving face to face?

How do we prioritize tzedakah?

Does tzedakah involve resources other than money?

What does the Bible mean (Proverbs) when it says "Tzedakah saves  from death"?

How does tzedakah relate to hesed/compassion, tikkun olam/repair of the world?


Rabbi Sager is Director of Sicha, a project to stimulate conversations about classical culture and contemporary needs. https://sichaconversation.org/

All talks are open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
