The old adage that it’s better to give than to receive rings especially true during the holiday season. Now, along comes the relatively new phenomenon of “Giving Tuesday,” the charitable world’s answer to the shopping-centered Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
But with Chanukah already underway and gift-buying — hopefully — already completed, Giving Tuesday on Dec. 3 can be especially relevant this year.
Why not use the seventh night of the holiday, with the menorah brimming with candles, to bring new light to your family with a gift to your favorite charity. Or maybe even choose a new one. It’s one gift you’ll remember all year. Happy Chanukah!
