Call for Tzedakah

Pittsburgh, California, Israel, Fighting Hunger

Please help us respond to those in need, as a community, by donating through ShulCloud to our TZEDAKAH FUND or to my DISCRETIONARY FUND. We are currently focused on contributing to the most trustworthy funds that support our neighbors and family in Pittsburgh, experiencing the California wildfires, attacks in southern Israel and hunger pangs in our own New York City. Let us, as Or Zarua, respond generously with tzedakah at this time. Donate to all current causes by writing a check to Congregation Or Zarua with “RELIEF” in the note. We will split the funds for distribution to those in need. If you wish to be more directed in your giving you may write any of the following on the NOTE line: WILDFIRES, ISRAEL, HUNGER, PITTSBURGH. You may also place the funds in my Discretionary, and I will be sure they are added where they are needed most.

Yishar koach in advance on your righteous giving that allows us to support those in need.

How to donate:

  1. Write a check to “Congregation Or Zarua” with “RELIEF” in the memo line (or specify Wildfires, Israel, Hunger, Pittsburg)
  2. Donate online at and select Tzedakah Fund or Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund.
