    I thank our Jewish community for being charitable toward this young man. For, isn't that what Judaism is all about? The Mitzvah or Tzedakah, doing good to those in need and loving our enemies. It pains and angers me to see anti-semitism on the rise in our nation and all because people believe what they see and hear instead of seeking out the truth for themselves. But then again, maybe truth isn't relevant anymore. I find our communities are far richer/rewarding and more diverse with "The People of the Book" in our midst. We are Blessed because of you.
