NEED TO IMPROVE YOUR KARMA?

WE ALL DO.  AND LUCKILY WE CAN HELP.  JOIN US AS WE SAVE THE WORLD.

VOLUNTEERS ARE NOT PAID, NOT BECAUSE  THEY ARE WORTHLESS BUT BECAUSE THEY ARE PRICELESS!

Often in Judaism, we discuss doing mitzvahs and giving tzedakah. Most of us understand that a mitzvah is a “good deed”, but do we understand tzedakah? How do we translate tzedakah? How is it defined? In truth, it is an untranslatable concept. Some will say it means “charity”. However, there is a distinction to be made here. Charity is often associated with caring or sympathy; it is an act born out of compassion, and perhaps, pity. Tzedakah is not an act born of emotion, but rather, an obligation. In the Jewish religion, tzedakah is an imperative; one is encouraged to perform “good deeds”, not because one feels pity or one finds it rewarding, but because it is the right thing to do. A closer translation of tzedakah would be “justice”; justice should be at the root of our reasons for volunteering. With this webpage, we hope to help you connect with service opportunities that allow you to forge connections with your community and help those in need.
