Tzedakah – A Spiritual and Practical Guide

What is Tzedakah?  Is it more than charity?  What are our sacred obligations as Jews to give?  How do we decide where to make our contributions with so many people and organizations asking for our help and support?  Join Jason Blau and Rabbi Marc Soloway for a unique class at Bonai Shalom to explore all these questions.

We will combine classical Jewish teachings and contemporary wisdom, to provide useful guidelines on how to make those difficult decisions about donations, as well as some of the spiritual concepts behind charitable giving.

In his professional life, Jason helps companies with their givin. He is an excellent resource on many different organizations and will hep us navigate the endless mail and email requests that fill up our mail boxes and our inboxes.

We hope to see you on Thursday, November 15, 7-9pm at Congregation Bonai Shalom, 1527 Cherryvale Road, Boulder. This is a free event (Tzedakah contributions welcome!)
