Tzedakah, Learning and Chesed Program

One of the central dimensions of Jewish life and culture is the responsibility for others. The notion of tzedakah, as an obligation to help others, is a critical piece of every Jewish community.

Here at B’nai Torah, we strive to be a center where charitable works, support networks, food for the hungry, and outreach to the elderly has moved from a peripheral dimension of synagogue life to a central dimension.

At the end of the day, every Jewish family and every Jewish community understands that it is through teaching our children that peace will come into the world. In addition to the projects that you read about, please understand that we see as part of our central obligation teaching the next generation how to become “tzedakah giants.” – Rabbi David Steinhardt
