Why Give?

Thank you for "accidentally" landing here.

Even a poor person who is kept alive by charitable funds must give charity from what he receives.
– Shulhan Aruch, Yoreh De’ah 248:1

I created Accidental Talmudist so I could share the wisdom of Judaism’s oral tradition. I hoped to connect with people like the guy I’d been – a seeker who was never really sure what he was seeking.

I thought the project would take a few minutes a day and if we got lucky, Nina and I might create a community of a few hundred souls. Just a few years later, it’s turned into much more than that.

Millions of people have viewed our posts on Jewish wisdom, music, history and humor.

On our weekly live show that reaches 70 countries, we share time-tested, Torah wisdom for increasing peace and holiness in our lives.

We receive daily messages from both Jews and non-Jews whose lives have been transformed by this work.

We are humbled and gratified by these results, but we are keenly aware that we could be doing so much more.

Our urgent budget needs include:

  • broadcast upgrades for the live show
  • salary for the following positions:
    • technical director
    • producer & booker
  • marketing for our education and prayer initiatives 

Your tax-deductible donation makes this crucial work possible

Accidental Talmudist is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
