Pushkes

Photo of Star of David on Tzedakah boxes (a.k.a. pushke) is courtesy of Liora who published it on Flickr. She herself doesn’t use it for Tzedakah but as a place for her doodles, drawings, and other creations. The Yiddish word, pushke is derived from the Polish word puszka and means: saving box.

Actually, the very first one I made (not pictured above) I use for myself. The others I give away as gifts---One to a Jewish teacher I had, one to the kind mother of a best friend.
