Can I send a question with a poll? Basically, our Rov told us in our situation that the first place we should give our maaser to is to our children’s teachers.
Chanukah is coming up, and we want to tip very generously, but we don’t want to flaunt our money. (I tried approaching the school and they want to only do it if we do it universal for all the teachers, not just our children’s teachers, which obviously would make our children’s teacher get much less, so this is not an option).
I’m wondering how high I can give that it won’t be flaunting our money.
My wife spoke to a cousin who is a teacher who teaches in a well-to-do school, and she says every year she had about 3-4 parents that give her about $500 4 to 5 times a year, and then about two parents that give $1000 a few times a year. Once every few years, she has a parent that gives $5000 a few times a year. I don’t know if this is normal, or this would be considered inappropriate and flaunting our money, which we are not trying to do at all.
Is it possible to take a poll to see what is the highest amount that we can give and still be considered appropriate?
