The word tzedakah is derived from the Hebrew root meaning righteousness, justice or fairness. Yet tzedakah changes not only the recipient, but the giver as well. Through tzedakah, the world is improved. Temple Emanu-El’s mission statement says:

Temple Emanu-El is ever mindful of its heritage and strives to contribute to the support and enrichment of the Jewish values of knowledge, social responsibility and caring for present and future generations.

Through your meaningful contribution, we will continue to support our community through sacred work that reaches beyond these walls and into the greater Dallas and Jewish communities.
