Message:  I have been wondering about halachas of kollel for a while. Your answer in a previous post helped answer some of my questions. I have a question that I hope you may be able to answer. My husband and I give money to our community kollel-but lately I can't help but wonder if It wouldn't be wiser to put the money away so that one day our sons- if they so desire- can have the ability to sit and learn torah. What would you say is the proper order o giving tzedakah? Is it the school that my children go to -the yeshiva my husband went to -the kollel -the shul-the poor people in our community? We try to give them all but what is the halachic order in which to do this?
thank you so much for your help.
Reply:  1) If there is a need now, you give it now....
2) It's hard to answer these questions "Al Regel Achat."
