Question
If a person gives tzedaka to an organization that save lives in Eretz Israel is that considered on the same level as to give to the city that he lives? thanks Sarah
Answer
It is brought in the Shluchan Aruch that in regards to giving Tzedaka "'The poor of the Land of Israel come before the poor of Chutz La'aretz". This is on assumption that the needs are the same in both places. In your case where lives are being saved, giving Tzedakah to Eretz Israel is better than Tzedakah to other places. Rabbi Baruch Kitay
