"Tithing one's earnings is simply a custom and is *not obligatory* under the Mosaic or rabbinical law"

The ***Jewish Encyclopedia*** under the topic of TITHING cotains the following insight:





The tithe for the poor gave rise to the tithingof one's earnings, with the object of distributing among the needy the sum so appropriated. This is inferred in Sifre (quoted in Tos. to Ta'an. 9a) from Deut. xiv. 22, and is therefore considered as an obligation imposed by the Mosaic law ("Ṭure Zahab" to Shulḥan 'Aruk, Yoreh De'ah, 249, 1; comp. Isaiah Horwitz, "Shene Luḥot… Continue

Jews Do Not Tithe Today

Jews Do Not Tithe Today



Thankfully, Jewish theologians know better than their Christian counterparts. They are well aware that only Levites have the right to receive tithe of the people.

Tithing: Christian vs Jewish Views!

Tithing: Christian vs Jewish Views!



There's a conflict between how modern day Christians and Judaism teach tithing. Some Christians teach tithing is "Old Testament" and no longer mandated. Others teach it is still required, but those that do teach it much different than Judaism. Among the differences:



Judaism teaches it only applies to the strict description of Torah; which is kosher livestock (not unkosher animals like pigs) and crops grown in Israel (but not crops… Continue
