From Kauai to Israel

The Sunday School of the Jewish Community of Kauai recently donated $200 to Lev Lalev, an organization that sponsors an orphanage for Jewish girls in Natanya, Israel.

The money had been collected as nickels, dimes, quarters and dollar bills during classes on Sundays as “tzedakah,” an important obligation for Jews. “In Judaism, giving to the poor or needy is not viewed as a generous, magnanimous act. It is simply an act of justice and righteousness, the performance of a duty,” said a press release.
