Saturday, September 5th was the International Day of Charity, which recognizes the role that charity plays in helping others as well as the efforts of charitable organizations. In Jewish tradition the concept of tzedakah has a more complex meaning than just charity, and encompasses both charity and justice. In the days leading up to the High Holidays, your students probably heard a lot about food drives and other community initiatives.
