Garden of Eden Tzedakah Box
Handmade Fused Art Glass adhered onto a polished metal box. Handmade Art Glass Lid with iridized marble on top. Raised metal letters in Hebrew spelling Tzedakah on each box. Tzedakah (Hebrew: ?????) is a Hebrew word commonly translated as charity, though it is based on the Hebrew word (???, tzedek) meaning righteousness, fairness or justice. In Judaism, tzedakah refers to the religious obligation to perform charity, and philanthropic acts, which Judaism emphasises are important parts of living a spiritual life; Maimonides says that the second highest form of tzedakah is to anonymously give donations to unknown recipients. Unlike philanthropy, which is completely voluntary, tzedakah is seen as a religious obligation, which must be performed regardless of financial standing, and must even be performed by poor people; tzedakah is considered to be one of the three main acts that can annul a less than favorable heavenly decree.
