Tzedakah-Sadaqah: A Series of Intercultural Service Projects

Join the Faith and Spirituality Centre in partnership with the Leadership and Student Engagement office as we explore what “service” means. We collaborate with various religious and spiritual communities in Calgary and offer a diverse range of educational workshops, organized volunteer opportunities and critical reflections/debriefs.

"Tzedakah" derives from Hebrew meaning righteousness, fairness or justice and is often used to refer to charity obligations. "Sadaqah" is an Arabic word means charity and comes from the tradition of Islam.
