We all know that one of a Jew's primary obligations is to give tzedakah, to support the poor, help the sick, and share the burden of Torah institutions.

- Are any earnings exempt from tithing?
- How about capital gains?
- May one adjust profits for inflation?
- How much may one earn and still be eligible for charity?
