Maimonides’ Eight Levels of Giving
Eight levels of giving identified by the medieval Jewish philosopher and Torah scholar Maimonides (Moses ben-Maimon; 1135–1204 CE).
- 8. He who does not give enough— and even that unwillingly.
- 7. He who does not give enough— but what he gives, he gives graciously.
- 6. He who gives enough— but only after he is asked.
- 5. He who gives enough and before he is asked— but with both parties knowing each other.
- 4. He who gives and does not know who receives— but the recipient knows who gave it.
- 3. He who gives and knows who will receive it— but the recipient will not know who gave it.
- 2. He who gives without knowing who will receive— and without the recipient knowing who gave it.
- 1. He who gives— and also assists the recipient in addressing the reason for the need in the first place.
Adapted from Moses Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Laws of Charity, 10.7-14.
