A conversation with Len Fishman, Director of the Gerontology Institute at UMass Boston and Rabbi Sara Paasche-Orlow, Director of Spiritual Care at HebrewSenior Life.
Len Fishman, Director of the Gerontology Institute at UMass Boston, and former CEO of Hebrew SeniorLife, the largest nonprofit provider of senior housing and healthcare in New England, and Rabbi Sara Paasche-Orlow, Director of Spiritual Care at Hebrew SeniorLife, will be part of a panel discussing the ethics of philanthropy involving Jewish communal organizations. This discussion comes at a time when a number of well-known Jewish 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. Rabbi Paasche-Orlow was a Wexner Graduate Fellow and worked for the Steinhardt Foundation.
This event is part of Hebrew College’s Winter Seminar “What Do We Owe Each Other: Jewish Conversations on Equality and the Challenges of a Just Society,” the week of January 27.
