Description

With Rabbis Carla Fenves of Congregation Emanu-El, David Kasher of Kevah, and Gedalia Potash of Chabad Noe Valley

The poorest place in the United States is not a dusty Texas border town or a blighted urban neighborhood. Its Kiryas Yoel, an orthodox Jewish enclave outside of New York City where 70 percent of the people live below the poverty level. Simultaneously, Jews are the second highest earning religious group in the nation, according to the Pew Forum. Join a conversation with rabbis from diverse streams of Judaism to explore how wealth disparity in the US affects the Jewish community and the possible power of tzedakah to solve these problems.
