|Halacha - Ma'aser on large gifts|
|Submitted by DYL Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
It is not necessary to take maaser on a gift designated for a specific purpose if this will undermine the purpose of the gift. Had the relaive given you an actual vehicle you would not be obligated to give 1/10 of its cash value to Tzedaka, and this is considered the same.
