"'Jewish women have a long legacy and tradition of being philanthropic...of giving tzedakah and performing acts of chesed - what has come to be called acts of lovingkindness. I think that sense of giving that women have still exists in our communities today,' says Perry.
'In America, women continue to be extremely generous and extremely philanthropic, whether they have a tzedakah box that they throw coins into when they light the Sabbath candles, or whether they give through pledges to Federation or the many other worthy causes in our communities.'
