Over the past few months, a number of readers have reached out to me in these turbulent times, offering financial support for Torah Musings. I am grateful for the offers and, more than that, the kind thoughts underlying them.
In consultation with my editorial board, I have created a simple way to donate any amount — small or large — for those who wish to do so. Let me make clear that I have a full-time, private sector job that thankfully supports my family, even in these difficult times (I do not work as a rabbi, although many people I meet seem to think I do).
I spend a tremendous amount of time working on Torah Musings — writing original essays, coordinating and editing contributions, and compiling the Daily Reyd. Additionally, I do almost all of the coding and graphics myself (although in the past Efraim Vaynman and my daughter Deena Englard contributed). Hosting the website costs about $500 a year.
In the top right of the screen, there is an icon for buying me a cup of coffee. If you believe it appropriate, please click on the icon and donate via Paypal even a small amount, e.g. the cost of a cup of coffee ($3). You can set monthly donations, as well. (Note that this is not a tax deductible donation.)
