Tzedakah for those who rely on it in Israel


When setting priorities for tzedakah, one should give precedence to the needy of Israel before the needy of other places. However, halachic authorities contend that one who is able to support himself outside of Israel, and then moves to Israel knowing that he will need to rely on tzedakah there, does not have precedence over others.

(Tzedakah uMishpat 3:14 and footnote 38)

Have a great day,
