TZEDAKAH Tzedakah is a Hebrew word meaning "righteousness", but commonly used to signify charity. This concept of "charity" differs from the modern Western understanding of "charity." The latter is typically understood as a spontaneous act of goodwill and a marker of generosity; tzedakah is an ethical obligation. The members of the Peach State Stitchers enjoy using their skills and talents to make life better for others in our local community and abroad. Our many projects show this commitment.
