It is a longstanding Jewish custom that the celebration of a simcha is accompanied by the giving of tzedakah.  In this way, our personal celebrations can be shared with the wider community.  One traditional way of observing this custom is by donating to the Synagogue. Please don’t hesitate to consult the rabbi about other appropriate recipients such as Mazon, the National Jewish Project for Fighting Hunger.
