Money Matters - maaser or debt?
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question: An avrech who has some debts but right now earns enough money for saving. should he give out maaser? should he take it from the savings or from his monthly income?
Answer: If he is not using the income to pay off the debts, he should take ma’aser from it (and any money that he puts in savings) unless separating ma’aser will cause him not to pay off his debts, in which case he should first pay off his debts.
