Doing the RIGHT Thing!!
We’re well into the Hebrew month of Av, and that means Elul, the last month of the popular year, cannot be far away. And THAT means – – you guessed it, time to ponder the year that passed and the year ahead. The approach of the New Year means the opportunity to re-approach the concept of “tzdakah” in our lives. Three Jewish women from Philadelphia show us how we might do this. Cheryl Barish Erlick represents the The Hebrew Free Loan Society of Greater Philadelphia; Eszter Kutas catches us up with the inspiring work of renovating the Holocaust Monument on the Parkway, to be completed this October; finally, Maddy Malis tells us the secret of how Federation Early Learning Services has been helping tens of thousands of children over its – – can you believe it? – – 107 years! Naomi Miller, Moshe Willig and Julie Simon provide the music, Rita Ratson provides the Yiddish, and you, dear listeners, provide the reason for The Marshall Portnoy Show.
