Kiva Lending Team: Jews
We loan because...
The word "tzedakah" is derived from the Hebrew root Tzedek, meaning righteousness, justice or fairness. In Judaism, giving to the poor is not viewed as a generous, magnanimous act; it is simply an act of justice and righteousness, the performance of a duty, giving the poor their due.
The highest form of Tzedakah is giving to someone where the recipient doesn't know the giver, and the giver doesn't know the recipient.
