Each month Sh’ma (shma.com) offers a deep pluralistic dive into a topic. This issue of Sh’ma offers a guide to the perplexing drudgery of tax filings. Articles in this issue help unpack the confounding national debate about taxes while also providing a Jewish lens of understanding the relationship between charitable status and taxation. Rooting taxes in a Jewish language of obligation, this array of essays explain taxes historically, beginning with talmudic debates about who is responsible for the upkeep of the city’s walls, and how taxes must be collected to avoid corruption.
