In the Christian and Jewish traditions, a tithe is a sum of money, usually 10% of a person's income, that is given to the church. The tithe is mandated in the Old Testament(Leviticus 27:30-33) and praised by Jesus(Matthew 23:23). Tithing is relatively rare in modern American society. As of 2002, only 6% of born again adults tithe, and only 3% of households overall.[1]
