Maaser money from reduction in price

Question:

  1. Can I use maaser money towards my transportation to go help out a family with their children get ready for Shabbos?
  2. Can I use maaser money if I am giving a big discount for someone who can’t afford the babysitting fee, I charge to make it worthwhile for me?

 

Answer:

Hello,

  1. If the family is a needy family, then you can use maaser money towards transportation to go help them out.
  2. Yes you may give them a reduction from the normal fair price of the service, because they are needy, and deduct that amount from maaser. It will surely be worthwhile, because you are turning, that small amount of money into ruchnius and olam haba.

 

Best wishes
