Vows for tzedakah


One who takes a vow to give tzedakah if a certain condition is fulfilled, such as, "If I succeed in losing weight, then I will give ________ to tzedakah," then the obligation to give tzedakah begins only upon fulfillment of the condition.

This is true whether or not the individual structures the vow with the technical vow structure identified in the Talmud.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Yoreh Deah 1:151)

Have a great day,
