Crab!


But I hear we make it out of "white fish powder and starch"

Maybe it's mezonos?

"Certain kinds of fish, such as the Pacific whiting, cannot form firm surimi without additives such as egg white or potato starch."

Even if it was flour it would be lidabek

Can I give my maaser to a loan gemach (like this: http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=55810.msg1271104#msg1271104) or must I give it to a place that gives it to poor people to keep?

Another sheila: FWIU, I don't need to give maaser on things that around the house that I sell online. But if I buy stuff to sell online, I need to give maser on the profit I make, correct? Is there a guideline that clarifies this?

Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty sure that a loan gemach is the ideal use of maaser.
There's a great english sefer that has all the maasser guidelines, I forgot what its called.

Thanks, you mean its better to give maaser to a loan gemach over a tzedakah?

I beleive so too.  The concept is that it is better to give someone a job than a donation.

I'll look at it again when I get back to my house, but I'm fairly certain he says this. I loaned money to a yeshiva for a year or two, and actually donated it all over it was paid back. You don't have that issue with the gemach.

Thanks. But I'm not sure giving a loan is so similar to giving a job...

Thanks, which gemach would you recommend I give my maaser to? Ozer Dalim? Are there other options?
