Giving tzadakah


#1

I know someone in need of money. The amount is more than I can afford. Can I give him the entire amount, and pay myself back from the tzedakah money that I put aside each day? In other words, let’s say he needs $1.000. Can I give it to him, and take money from my tzedakah box over the next several months to pay myself back? The person is willing to accept tzedakah.

Yes.
