Personal Reflections from the President & CEO

According to Jewish tradition, we are nearing the end of the Days of Awe, the ten days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur that are known as a time for retrospection. Many believe that our actions during these Days of Awe can alter the way in which our fate over the next year will be inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life. For me, a chance encounter that I just experienced renewed my own personal dedication toward tzedakah, giving back to the community, which I’d like to share with you during this meaningful time of year.
