My close relative is IYH going to be having a baby soon and we want to fly in her sister from out of town to be able to help her. We want to know if we can use Maaser money for the flight?


If she needs the help and can’t afford it, it is a legitimate form of Tzedaka. Certainly Maaser money may be used.

You should explore if there are cheaper options available, just as you would if you were using personal non-Maaser money.
