What can we learn from the Jewish tradition of giving and charity? Co-Hosts Jeff Lee and DJ Chuang takes a look at a list of eight levels of giving from Jewish tradition that exemplifies how generosity can be more vituous, noble, and altruistic.
The list comes from this article, Eight Degrees of Giving, by Chaya Shuchat—Rabbi Moses be Maimon (1135-1204) formulated a list of eight levels of giving, correlating to the degree to which the giver is sensitive to the needs and feelings of the recipient.
In an upcoming episode, we’ll share our reflections on this online event, Celebration of Generosity, from Generous Giving.
