Young Zev’s family has a tradition of giving to those in need – dropping coins into a tzedakah box every Friday evening. Zev loves this special family time and feels good about giving. His mom says that he knows that there are people out in the world who need money more than they do. One rainy afternoon Zev and his family stop by the Jewish Federation office to give the tzedakah he and his family had been collecting over the past few weeks during Operation Protective Edge. Zev proudly donates his gift saying, “This is for the people of Israel who need it the most now.”
