Creating Angels - Stories of Tzedakah
Award winning storyteller Barbara Diamond Goldin has collected and retold twenty-four stories about tzedakah in this inspiring volume.
One talmudic Sage, Rabbi Assi, believed the commandment tzedakah to be so important that he said, "Tzedakah is as important as all other commandments put together."

Barbara Diamond Goldin says, "By performing tzedakah and the mitzvah of acts of loving kindness, we engage in tikkun olam or repair of the world. We experience the powerful feeling of doing good in our world, of creating angels. It is my hope that these stories will encourage young readers to create their own angels and to recapture the significance of the mitzvah of tzedakah for today's world."
