Join us for a conversation with Len Fishman, former CEO of Hebrew SeniorLife, and Rabbi Sara Paasche-Orlow, director of spiritual care at Hebrew SeniorLife.

They will be discussing the difficult question of whether Jewish institutions should accept money from donors who might be “tainted” in the eyes of the Jewish community. Either because of political activity or illicit behavior or business practices that are problematic, a number of well-known philanthropists have come under scrutiny and many organizations are grappling with the difficult question of what to do with money that comes from these donors.

Our guests from Hebrew SeniorLife will reflect on the dilemmas that have occurred in their own development work for HSL, as well as engage the community in a conversation about appropriate values guiding such decisions.
