Noam Zion
 
This essay is excerpted and adapted from, Jewish Giving in Comparative Perspectives: History and Story, Law and Theology, Anthropology and Psychology, a three-volume academic series by Noam Zion.
 
The works constitute a grand, in-depth review of Jewish narratives of giving to needy people - from their classical roots to the modern era.
