Teaching our kids how to give

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/philanthropy/article/teaching_our_kids_how_to_give_20070126

Giving tzedakah is one way to achieve tikkun olam, or the Jewish obligation to repair what is broken and lacking in the world. Both affirm our responsibility to give a part of what we have to take care of others who are less fortunate. We do this because Judaism views individual wealth as neither a right nor a privilege but a form of stewardship for which we are charged to care for the world.
