It has been established that one may not pray facing a picture.

  1. May one pray by a table where pictures or money bills lie?
  2. How about engraved images like coins?
  3. If prohibited, how can the practice of praying in front of tzedaka money be justified?
  • During Pesukei d'Zimra, we push the money down in the rabbi's silver cup so no one can see the pictures while we are davening.

  • @Mike Is that joke (i.e. you are giving tzedakah, after which you cannot see the money) or is it serious description of behavior indicating a No to number 1.
