Contemporary Jewish Philanthropy in America provides a comprehensive overview of how Tzedakah-the obligation to give, to share, to help-can be understood, taught and realized in contemporary society. The chapters in this book examine the social sources for philanthropy, the various types of givers, recent trends in philanthropy, large scale giving and clients' perspectives. The contributors to this volume-social scientists, communal leaders and practitioners who are associated with the Council of Jewish Federations and the North American Jewish Data Bank-analyze the motivations and functions of Jewish giving in order to throw light on this enormous and vital enterprise.
