You would not decide to pay your accountant, dentist or car mechanic less than what you rightly owe them for services provided. The Tzedoko Yomi initiative recognises that each functioning Shul has various expenses, bills and running costs (even during the isolation period) to pay. Your shul relies on all its members in this regard. By committing to give on this platform, you will be helping to benefit your chosen Shul.
