1. Is it true that these priorities are not obligatory – that I have the right to give Tzedeka the way I choose ? Thank you

    1. The rules of who and when to give are obligatory, although not always clear cut. When a doubt arises a poseik should be consulted.

      1. Thank you . I am still a bit confused . Perhaps you can help me clarify . On page 376 of Rabbi Feuer’s Sefer tzedakah treasury he writes :
        R’ Moshe Feinstein (yd 1 144) rules that all of the priorities enumerated in the SA only apply to the gabbai tzedakah … an individual donor … has the right to divide his money as he wishes .
