Harry if I am to say, the 'tithe' should still be applied in spite of whatever we still give, to charity, as tzedakah, etc. Perhaps I feel this way because I witnessed what trying faithfully to apply Torah principles achieved in a society that hadn't much wealth. We (the Igbo society) generates billions of $, not naira now, but because most don't follow the Torah principles, we have hungry and destitute Igbos at last. When I was growing up I did not see a beggar in Igboland. Now we have them. I stand to be corrected. The Torah is too perfect. The best that can be done is to follow its dictates as closely as possible wherever one finds himself or herself.
