JVMS believes strongly in the Jewish tradition of tzedakah. Tzedakah is the Hebrew word for charitable acts--giving aid, assistance and/or money to those in need. The word tzedakah is derived from the Hebrew root, tzadei-dalet- qof, meaning righteousness, justice or fairness. In Judaism, the act of giving is not viewed as a generous, magnanimous act; it is simply an act of justice and righteousness; it is our duty.
