What’s a pushke?

September 13, 2007

A pushke is the Yiddish equivalent of a cardboard Unicef box. It is a little can or jar or box kept in the kitchen to collect money for charity. The money from the pushke is given away regularly & usually anonymously. Everyone in the house can contribute to it & decorate it.
