Video: Rabbi Immanuel Schochet on Tzedaka

Why is tzedaka such a central mitzvah in Judaism?  It seems somewhat un-spiritual that a person should need to affirm their faith in G-d through money.

This week, we read about the donation of the Jews to the building of a Sanctuary for G-d in the form of gold, silver, copper and other valuable materials.  In light of this theme of giving to G-d from one’s physical possessions, Rabbi Immanuel Schochet explains the uniqueness of the mitzvah of charity in the Jewish tradition.
