Our kid contestant Nachshon teaches us all about tzedakah, the Hebrew word for charity! Donating money, volunteering at a food pantry, donating toys, and providing warm clothing to those in need are all great ways to give tzedakah. Nachshon plays three games: “Say My Name”, “Prayer or Pop Song?”, and “Do We Do That?
