Tzedakah, or charity, is one of the most important mitzvoth in Judaism; one of the most powerful forms of charity is person-to-person charity, helping someone and giving them the means to support themselves.

This was stated by WIZO South Africa in a media release on the launching of a WIZO tzedakah box and on the winners of the label competition.

Says WIZO: “Not everyone has the time or the ability to give in this way, but there are those who work tirelessly toward this aim. The many volunteers and workers at WIZO in Israel and all over the world, exemplify this commitment to uplifting those in need.

“Perhaps we do not have the ability to reach out with our time and our skills, but we can perform this mitzvah by supporting those who do so on our behalf. Small change in a tin can add up to make a big impact.”

WIZO South Africa launched a tzedakah box “to bring this spirit of charity into every South African Jewish home. A competition was held for children from across South Africa to design the labels, and entries flooded in.

“The panel of judges... had a tough time selecting the winners of each of the three age categories. Not only did they have to judge the entries on their artistic merit, but also on which best suited the medium. “

The winners are:

  • 6 - 9 years: Lilla Fleischmann  (Weizmann Primary, Cape Town)
  • 10 - 13 years: Tyra Nackan (Crawford Primary La Lucia, Durban)
  • 14 - 18 years: Kayla Drutman (Torah Academy Girls High, Johannesburg)

The tzedakah tins are available from WIZO offices. “Get yours today to have your very own connection to Israel right in your home!”
