                This year's Lion of Judah luncheon was hosted by Monique Miller and featured a very heartfelt talk from JDC Board member and philanthropist, Jane Weitzman. Her talk, 'Soul to Sole: A World of Jews in Need', focused on two significant issues. First, she asked us to remember that so much can be done for so little. Weitzman stressed how simple it can be to change someone's life with even the smallest gesture. Secondly, she said we must work harder to instill the values of tzedakah to our children and grandchildren. She fears that today's youth and the generations to come, do not truly understand the importance of tikkun olam, or 'repairing the world'.
