"Tzedakah and acts of kindness are the equivalent of all the mitzvot of the Torah."

Jerusalem Talmud, Pe'ah 1:1

 

It is a mitzvah to help support our Jewish community. Jewish holidays and joyous lifecycle occasions - such as bar/bat mitzvah, engagements, weddings, births/baby namings - are all wonderful opportunities to make a donation to one of our funds. Times of sadness - funerals, unveilings, shiva minyanim - offer an opportunity to both honor the memories of our loved ones and express gratitude to the community that has supported mourners at these difficult times.
