Babylonian Talmud, Gittin 7b
תלמוד בבלי, גיטין זא
אפילו עני המתפרנס מן הצדקה יעשה צדקה.
Even a poor person who is supported through tzedakah must give tzedakah.

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. Why do you think a person who is living off the public tzedakah would be required to give tzedakah?

2. Do you think this is a good idea? Why or why not?

3. What does this tell us about the purpose of tzedakah?

Time Period: Rabbinic (Maccabees through the Talmud)
