In this episode, we learn positive mitzvah #38, which is to give charity to the poor.
This mitzvah to give charity is known as giving "tzedaka."
The Rambam (Maimonides, or Moshe ben Maimon) (born approx. 1135 CE / died 1204 CE) compiled a list of the eight levels of charity, starting with the highest and most ideal form of charity, working his way down the list in descending order. In this episode, we go through the Rambam's eight levels of charity in detail.
