This is based on the teachings of Rabbi Chaim Palachi in his book ‘Ma’ase Ha’Tzedaka’ מעשה הצדקה (Page 109B) where he explains that we should give charity in the amount of 104 (Twice 52 – Minyan Ben בן) and in this merit we do a great Tikun (rectification) for the sin of Adam Ha’Rishon, for the golden calf, Tikun Ha’Brit and more. This charity will go to our Yeshivah and Torah learning men. Click here to donate
