Internatonal transfer fees


Shalom Rabbi,

Regarding donating money to someone or an institution overseas (for example in E.Y).

The banks often have an international transfer fee.

I would like to know, would this fee be part of the maaser I am donating or not a part of it – and therefore it would be over and above the maaser money?

Thank you




The expenses that you incur in order to do the transfer are included in your calculation of maaser.

Best wishes
