The RTC in Israel
How often have we heard the words from generation to generation? Usually, they're found in a positive context. But what if they describe a legacy of pain and anguish?

The children who come to the Residential Treatment Center in Israel are haunted by family violence, emotional neglect and physical abuse. The RTC's long-term treatment center provides a safe and secure place for the children, a cocoon of peace and warmth in which they can learn to trust and love. This environment helps break the cycle of family violence and provides these children with a new framework for the words from generation to generation.

What’s a Jew to Do on Christmas?
In San Francisco, laugh and eat egg rolls, thanks to Kung Pao Kosher Comedy, which brings the best in Jewish comedy to the city, along with great Chinese food and fortune cookies with Yiddish proverbs.

A portion of the proceeds from the event is donated to local charities, which have included Shalom Task Force, the Jewish Women’s Task Force on Domestic Violence; the Charlotte Maxwell Clinic serving low-income women with cancer; and World (Women Organized to Respond to Life-Threatening Diseases), a social and information network for women with HIV/AIDS.
