High Holiday Tzedakah

Giving tzedakah (charitable donations) is a long-standing Jewish custom at the High Holidays.  Every year, Fabrangen selects several charitable organizations that we recommend for your holiday giving.  Combining your tzedakah and your donation to Fabrangen in one check is convenient for you, and bundling the donations increases our impact on the recipient organizations.

Fabrangen Tzedakah Collective

In addition, you can also select from a variety of organizations through the Fabrangen Tzedakah Collective.

The Fabrangen Tzedakah Collective was established in 1975 as an independent forum to democratically involve members in the selection and distribution of funds to charitable organizations. The group meets periodically to study and research recipient groups to which members can allocate their own funds as they choose.   Since its inception, the impact of the Fabrangen Tzedakah Collective has been substantial, with over 70 semi-annual allocations, for a total of over $2 million.

Your contributions to the Tzedakah Collective during the High Holidays are an important addition to our giving.  If you have made the decision to donate through the Tzedakah Collective, please indicate your donation preferences on the Allocation Form and send it to us with a check to  Fabrangen Tzedakah Collective, c/o Goldman, Treasurer, 4530 38th Street NW, Washington, DC 20016.
