The Gira is a work of spiritual charity. There is no charge, however, we accept donations if you would like to contribute to our work. The donations that are collected go to the costs associated with the Gira and for the materials, such as candles, etc.  We will also have an Ogan (a drummer) it is customary to offer a part of the donations for his services.
