comment Early Sources that Charity Should Optimally Support Torah
Just to clarify (since you say "Over any charitable cause including poor people"), you're discussing donating money to non-poor Torah scholars, in order to... provide for luxuries??

comment Acronym of Iyar
Re "If you would like to know what the Bible called the month of Iyyar": note that our (Babylonian) names for the months do appear in the Bible (though Iyar doesn't, I don't think).
