Erev Rosh Hashanah – Don’t Forget!!

Giving tzedakah on erev Rosh Hashana is considered a great mitzvah.  In fact, as a result of Jews giving tzedakah, the Heavenly Gates of Mercy are opened wide.  For in the same measure that we take pity on the poor, Hashem takes pity on us. ~ Ohr Hachayim

On that note, I just wanted to remind you to set yourself up with one or both of these wonderful organizations before Rosh Hashanah to ensure that a day does not go by the entire year without giving tzedaka.

Daily Giving –

Sign up to donate $1 per day to charity, which they will distribute to over 40 wonderful charities that serve the greater Jewish community, most of which you are probably familiar with.  I encourage you all to check out their website.  Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity!

Keren Hashana –

Many years ago, the Lubavitcher Rebbe established “Keren Hashana,” a fund that will also disburse your tzedaka  to worthy causes, daily, giving you the benefit of this mitzvah every day of the year!

You can give as little as 5 cents per day ($19.20 for the year) for you, and if you want, each of your family members, which will ensure that you and your family don’t go a day without giving tzedaka.

Don’t wait!  These organizations are a lifesaver and now is the time to take care of this.  

Lastly, don’t forget that “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.
