Subject:  debt and Tzedaka
Message:  Is one obligated to give Tzedaka while having a hefty school debt? Or may one pay off his school debt first and then start giving Tzedaka?

Reply:  The school debt is not Tzedaka if it is a required tuition. You can give your Tzedaka to a cause that your friend wants to give to and your friend should give to your school. Then it does work.
