Tzedakah Boxes by Emanuel
Yair Emanuel Tzedakah Boxes
Sensitivity for human suffering and a willingness to donate generously to deserving causes is a Jewish characteristic. The custom to give charity goes back to Temple times when visitors would help to contribute to its upkeep. Today, the ever-present charity box in the Jewish home is an on-going reminder to always remember the needs of others.
A Yair Emanuel Charity Box
Yair Emanuel, one of Israel’s most popular Judaica artists, brings us a selection of striking charity boxes that add a new dimension to giving charity. There is a choice of colorful wood boxes, painted in acrylic colors and then painted with layers of lacquer to ensure durability and long-lasting wear. The illustrations depict lively views of Jerusalem, Hamsa or Yair’s hallmark peacock design. For children, there is a delightful Noah’s Ark image that will encourage them from a young age to drop in their coins and enjoy the mitzvah of giving charity. Alternatively, Yair offers anodized aluminum boxes in a sleek circular design. These come in striking contemporary color combinations that will enhance the dé,cor wherever they are placed.
When to give charity
Jews customarily give charity at all times of the day – when they wish to celebrate, before praying, on Yahrzeit days and to commemorate special occasions. It is customary to keep a charity box next to the Shabbat candles and to slip in a few coins before welcoming Shabbat to the home. Others keep a box in a prominent place in the kitchen. It is never too early to teach children to give charity. So, keep a box in a child’s bedroom or study.
