Tzedakah / Charities – Giving at NNLS

Tzedakah is a mainstay of Jewish life. The sages teach that the world was built upon kindness. However, tzedakah goes one step beyond. Literally translated as “justice” or “righteousness,” tzedakah tells us that sharing what we have with others isn't something special, it is the just thing to do.

NNLS supports a range of charities through our appeals at Pesach and Yom Kippur, and throughout the year.

Nominations for the 2017 Yom Kippur appeal are open until 30 April 2017. If you would like to nominate a charity for consideration, please email tzedakah@nnls-masorti.org.uk as soon as possible for an application form.

Charities NNLS has supported in the past include:

 
"And when you reap the harvest in your land, you shall not reap the corners of your field; neither shall you gather the gleaning of your harvest.  And you shall not glean your vineyard, nor shall you gather the single grapes of your vineyard.  You shall leave them for the poor and the stranger." Vayikra 19:9-10
