Last week we lauded the efforts of several Jewish organizations to ameliorate the plight of the victims of the recent massive Oklahoma tornado and the extraordinary gesture the owner of Agri Star Meat & Poultry of Postville, Iowa, made in donating ten tons of meat for distribution.
We are similarly proud of the work of the Orthodox Union, which mounted a grass roots effort, involving congregants of many of the OU’s synagogues, that raised some $15,000 in disaster relief funds which were forwarded to the local Chabad center for distribution. (See Community Currents, here.)
When it comes to helping those in need, we Jews take a back seat to no one.
