A shanda far die goyim
I can’t quite articulate how angry and depressed the shanda that is the Bernard Madoff story has made me. How anyone can defraud Elie Wiesel (ELIE WIESEL!!!), a foundation dedicated to facilitating bone marrow transplants (an especially sensitive subject with me at the moment since a good friend of mine is awaiting just such a transplant), and so many other individuals and organizations is simply beyond me.
I am keeping up with the devastating effects on Jewish charities, schools, and other nonprofit organizations through many outlets, including the eJewishPhilanthropy and JTA Fundermentalist blogs. And, as always, I am looking for commentary and insight via the ever-informed Jeffrey Goldberg.
