Tzedakah: A Combination of Justice and Love
“Tzedakah means BOTH justice and charity because we believe they go hand in hand. Justice is impersonal; charity is personal.
We call G-d Avinu Malkeinu, our Father, our King. A King dispenses justice; a parent gives a child a gift out of love. And that is the meaning of Tzedakah – an act that combines both justice and love.”
