Ask The Rav: Your Ma’aser Guide For What You Can Use It For

The following is made available by Ask The Rav, and is a compendium of answers to real-life questions posed to Ask The Rav:

  1. Ma’aser money should ideally be given to Tzedakah to support the needy.

  2. Alternatively, it may be used to pay for non-obligatory Mitzvos. But not for a Mitzvah that one is obligated to do, and thus would regardless spend that money.

  3. As a general rule: When spending Ma’aser on something it may be spent on, one should always explore if there are cheaper options available, just as you would if you were using personal non-Maaser money.

  4. Remember, Hashem says: Test Me. Ma’aser is a sure investment!
