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.
We are pleased to share a Q & A with Danielle Hartman, President & CEO of Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services, that was published in the Sun Sentinel on September 24, 2014. The Q & A sheds light on the current needs of the community that JFS serves.
