Don't put off until tomorrow the charitable giving you could be doing today: First Things review of Righteous Giving to the Poor, which harks to the rabbinic tradition.
"Rivka and Moshe Ulmer summarize rabbinic teaching about charitable giving in Righteous Giving to the Poor. The book includes an overview of rabbinic literature in general before it gets to its main topic. Rich in quotation, the section on tzedakah examines the theological underpinnings of charity, the this- and next-worldly rewards of giving, and some of the rules governing charitable giving and receiving." -- Peter J. Leithart, First Things
