Shalom! This box is a very meaningful one, as it embodies one of the greatest Jewish values...Tzedakah. You will learn about the diffferent levels of tzedakah on your information card, and hopefully you and your family will begin filling your lives with tzedakah as you start reaching for the highest level. 

 Watch how to make your tzedakah box!  Now you and your family can start collecting spare change.  Fill your box and donate to your favorite charity and then do it all over again!

Watch how to make your Blessing Bag!  Keep your blessing bag inside a grown up's car and next time you see someone asking for food or money, you can hand them the bag. Imagine how happy you'll make someone!
