Title: Harry Fischel: Pioneer of Jewish Philanthropy: Forty Years of Struggle for a Principle and the Years Beyond


book-harry-fischel

Harry Fischel was a man who put the community first and did whatever he could to make a difference in people’s lives. He remains a posthumous role model for any Jew who wants to be true to the Torah and who wants to see an ideal example of how a person can use money and influence for great things. This biography should inspire young and old and can make us all better Jews.

About the Author: Michael Lorch works in the financial services industry and lives in Woodmere, New York, with his wife and two daughters.

The Jewish people have been blessed with a plethora of biographies and memoirs about our rabbis, educators, philanthropists and community leaders. Unfortunately, many that were published in previous generations have been lost to history, and the impacts that many noteworthy individuals had on our people have been largely forgotten.
