Maaser money for non-obligatory tuition


Hi – I know the general rule for maaser money is that it cannot be used to pay for obligations including things like day school tuition for a person’s children. However, can maaser money be used for non-obligatory tuition/education? For example, a person who wants to use maaser money to pay for a semicha program.

Thank you and tizku l’mitzvos.




If you are having a hard time financially, you may use maaser money for this.

Best wishes
