Here they quote the Igros Moshe


That while Maaser money is only for the poor Chomesh money on the other hand can also go to Mitzvas other than feeding the poor.

I could not find an Igros Moshe online. I would like to know if the Gra also holds like that. I try to hold like the Gra whenever I can.

Thank you!

    I couldn't find the articles quote in the Hebrew Books link - its possible they brought the wrong siman. Anyways to answer my own question it seems to be supported by all opinions and dates back to the Yerushalmi - asktherav.com/14281-uses-of-chomesh-as-opposed-to-maaser

  • @zunior It's the right link and siman - you have to look at the second siman 93 (first set is OC)
