Blessing for giving Tzedakah

This is not "charity," however, in the sense of mere money, but reflects an attitude to effect righteousness within the world. The Hebrew blessing itself is quite simple:

Blessed art thou, Lord our God, Master of the universe, who hast sanctified us
with thy commandments, and commanded us about the Tzedakah.
