Posted on 09 November 2018

Dear Families, “Tzedakah” — what’s it all about? How do we teach it? Each week at our Early Childhood Shabbat Celebration at the Aaron Family JCC, the children come up and excitedly put their money into our many tzedakah boxes. Why? It’s fun. But without knowing it, they are getting into the tzedakah habit. The […] Continue Reading
