I try to post this every year before Rosh Hashana because it is just such an amazing opportunity that everyone should try to take advantage of right now.
Many years ago, the Lubavitcher Rebbe established “Keren Hashana,” a fund that will disburse your tzedaka (charity) to worthy causes, daily, giving you the benefit of this mitzvah every day of the year!
You can give as little as 10 cents per day ($38.50 for the year) for you and each of your family members to ensure that you and your family don’t go a day without giving tzedaka.
While I normally pay for each of my young children to participate in this great mitzvah, last year they decided to start using their own money and are so excited about the idea.
Right now, before Rosh Hashana is the perfect time to set it up. You can easily do it online by using this link https://lubavitch.com/donate.html?o=2026760=lubavitch.com1 If you wish, you can then email firstname.lastname@example.org to send the names of your family members so that it is clear that the charity is coming from each member of your family. If you prefer to call them, the phone number is 718 774-4000.
Don’t wait! Now is the time to take care of this.
“Causing others to give tzedaka is greater than giving tzedakah yourself” (Bava Basra 9). Therefore, pass this on! By forwarding this to friends and family, who knows how many people will sign up for this great mitzvah and how much of an effect it will have on your neshama going into Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.
