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.
