By Miriam Frenkel,Yaacov Lev

Monotheistic charity and giving demonstrate many universal gains. those underlying similarities replicate a normally shared view approximately God and his kinfolk to mankind and what people owe to God and anticipate from him. however, the truth that the emphasis is put on similarities doesn't suggest that the distinctiveness of the suggestions of charity and giving within the 3 monotheistic religions is denied. The members’ different and heterogeneous methods distinguish the publication from different works on charity and giving in monotheistic religions.
