PUBLISHER’S NOTE

Repairing the world

A

s you browse through the pages of SOURCE, you’ll find listings for the multitude of community organizations and institutions in Northeast Ohio that are doing incredible and meaningful work to positively impact area residents every day. Many of these entities are doing work that’s so profound, they’re spreading acts of tikkun olam throughout the community. Whether they’re assisting those in need by providing specialized services or helping strengthen the ties that bind our community through engaging programming, they truly are repairing the world – and with national tragedies dominating the news and reports of anti-Semitism on the rise, it’s fair to say the world is in need of repairing. When this annual issue arrives at your mailbox, we will have just concluded the lighting of the menorah on each of the eight nights of Chanukah. Our sages point out an interesting quality with light. When someone is in need of light, they turn on the light switch (or, before electricity, they’d light a candle). When doing so, even though it’s for the benefit of the one who flipped the switch or lit the candle, others often equally benefit from that light: “A candle for one is a candle for a hundred.” So, to add to the wonderful qualities contained in light is the idea that we share our good fortune and blessings for the benefit of others. That’s what many of these organizations and institutions are doing in their work. So too are individual members of the community, some of whom the Cleveland Jewish News recently honored as the 2017 class of CJN’s 18 Difference Makers. You’ll find their profiles starting on Page 97. These are the folks who are doing their part in spreading good fortune and blessings for others through acts of tikkun olam and tzedakah. They are the lamplighters who brighten the lives of so many others – and in such a selfless manner! On behalf of all of us at SOURCE and the Cleveland Jewish Publication Company, thanks for doing your part to repair our world, and thank you for your continued

WOODMERE

2018 HOLIDAYS

Jewish Holidays and noteworthy dates Tu B’Shevat

Tuesday, Jan. 30 (begins at sunset) Wednesday, Jan. 31 (ends at nightfall) Tu b’Shevat, the 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar, is the day that marks the beginning of a “new year” for trees. This is the season in which the earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel emerge from their winter sleep and begin a new fruit-bearing cycle. We mark the day of Tu b’Shevat by eating fruit, particularly the kinds that are singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land: grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates. On this day, we remember that “man is a tree of the field” (Deuteronomy 20:19), and reflect on the lessons we can derive from our botanical analogue.

Purim

Wednesday, Feb. 28 (begins at sunset) Thursday, March 1 (ends at nightfall) The jolly festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring). It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman’s plot “to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day,” as recorded in the Megillah (book of Esther).

Passover

Friday, March 30 (begins at sunset) Saturday, April 7 (ends at nightfall) The eight-day festival of Passover is celebrated in the early spring, from the 15th through the 22nd of the Hebrew month of Nissan. It commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. By following the rituals of Passover, we have the ability to relive and experience the true freedom that our ancestors gained.

Yom Hashoah

Wednesday, April 11 (begins at sunset) Thursday, April 12 (ends at nightfall) Holocaust Memorial Day

Yom Hazikaron

Tuesday, April 17 (begins at sunset) Wednesday, April 18 (ends at nightfall) Israel Memorial Day

Yom Ha’Atzmaut

Wednesday, April 18 (begins at sunset) Thursday, April 19 (ends at nightfall) Israeli Independence Day

Shavuot

Saturday, May 19 (begins at sunset) Monday, May 21 (ends at nightfall) Shavuot coincides with the date that G‑d gave the Torah to the Jewish people at Mount Sinai more than 3,300 years ago. It comes after 49 days of eager counting, as we prepared ourselves for this special day. It is celebrated by lighting candles, staying up all night to learn Torah, hearing the reading of the Ten Commandments in synagogue, feasting on dairy foods and more.

12 SOURCE 2018


2018 HOLIDAYS Tisha b’Av

Saturday, July 21 (begins at sunset) Sunday, July 22 (ends at nightfall) The Three Weeks is an annual mourning period that falls in the summer during which we do not cut our hair, purchase new clothes, listen to music or hold weddings. It reaches its climax and concludes with the fast of the ninth of Av, the date when both Holy Temples were set aflame. This is the saddest day of the Jewish calendar, and it is also the date that many other tragedies befell our people. The fast of Tisha b’Av begins at sunset the previous evening. Besides fasting, we abstain from additional pleasures: washing, applying lotions or creams, wearing leather shoes and marital relations. Until midday, we sit on the floor or on low stools.

Rosh Hashanah

Sunday, Sept. 9 (begins at sunset) Tuesday, Sept. 11 (ends at nightfall) Rosh Hashanah is the birthday of the universe, the day G‑d created Adam and Eve, and it’s celebrated as the head of the Jewish year. It’s celebrated with candle lighting in the evenings, festive meals with sweet delicacies during the night and day, prayer services that include the sounding of the ram’s horn (shofar) on both mornings, and desisting from creative work.

Yom Kippur

Tuesday, Sept. 18 (begins at sunset) Wednesday, Sept. 19 (ends at nightfall) Yom Kippur is the holiest day of the year – the day on which we are closest to G‑d and to the quintessence of our own souls. It is the Day of Atonement – “For on this day He will forgive you, to purify you, that you be cleansed from all your sins before G‑d” (Leviticus 16:30). For nearly 26 hours – from several minutes before sunset on 9 Tishrei to after nightfall on 10 Tishrei – we “afflict our souls,” or abstain from food and drink, do not wash or anoint our bodies, do not wear leather footwear and abstain from marital relations.

Sukkot

Sunday, Sept. 23 (begins at sunset) Sunday, Sept. 30 (ends at nightfall) For 40 years, as our ancestors traversed the Sinai Desert, following the Exodus from Egypt, miraculous “clouds of glory” surrounded and hovered over them, shielding them from the dangers and discomforts of the desert. Ever since, we remember G‑d’s kindness and reaffirm our trust in His providence by dwelling in a sukkah – a hut of temporary construction with a roof covering of branches – for the duration of the Sukkot festival (on the Jewish calendar Tishrei 15-21). For seven days and nights, we eat all our meals in the sukkah and otherwise regard it as our home.

Simchat Torah

Monday, Oct. 1 (begins at sunset) Tuesday, Oct. 2 (ends at nightfall) The holiday of Sukkot is followed by an independent holiday called Shemini Atzeret. In Israel, this is a one-day holiday; in the Diaspora, it is a two-day holiday, and the second day is known as Simchat Torah. This holiday is characterized by utterly unbridled joy, which surpasses even the joy of Sukkot. The joy reaches its climax on Simchat Torah, when we celebrate the conclusion – and restart – of the annual Torah-reading cycle.

Chanukah

Sunday, Dec. 2 (begins at sunset) Monday, Dec. 10 (ends at nightfall) Chanukah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights,” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and fried foods. At the heart of the festival is the nightly menorah lighting. The menorah holds nine flames, one of which is the shamash (“attendant”), which is used to kindle the other eight lights. On the first night, we light just one flame. On the second night, an additional flame is lit. By the eighth night of Chanukah, all eight lights are kindled. Special blessings are recited, often to a traditional melody, before the menorah is lit, and traditional songs are sung afterward. Information provided by Chabad.org.

We’ve come too far to ‘think old’ ... right? The answer is a resounding YES. But we’re not all there yet.

T

he rough and tumble journey past middle age and beyond – with the proverbial perception of getting old – is changing us, and not for the better. Experts now agree that buying into the stereotypes put on aging people, dubbed “age-isms,” changes our bodies, the way we think and our health. It changes our lives. We are barraged with negatives about aging that are literally bad for us, and the problem is that many of us begin to identify more with these stereotypes, or age-isms, rather than defy them. We don’t have to accept the age-ism stereotypes. There are better roads to healthy aging, beginning by permanently changing how we personally approach – and participate in – moving through our years. AGE-ISM: DON’T BUY INTO IT. We must mentally rewire our thinking to continue our journey of aging in the best way possible. Understand the importance of how we perceive our own aging process, especially in context with how others perceive us. It’s never too late to start thinking “ageless.” After all, age is just a number. Read the advice of those who know: “Make the most of what you are and what you are capable of. Think of this every day. Grow older busily. A friend once told me to ‘bloom where you are planted,’ and as a result, I have tried to take advantage of opportunities that come my way and have always given my best efforts.” Alice Sayre, Menorah Park’s Stone Gardens Residents’ Council president “I’m 75 and I go zip-lining. I zip-lined down a 500-foot mountain over the ocean, and I loved it! I wanted to do it over and over and over again. My logic is that age is just a number. I don’t let it define me or tell me who I am or how I am supposed to act. I’m adventurous, and that’s not going to change.” Linda Mintz, Menorah Park volunteer

“I traveled all over the U.S. I was a businessman until I was 90, and I was very surprised when I got to be 90. I wish I had 20 more years, because I have a lot of ideas and a lot more to do.” Ivan Gelfand, Menorah Park’s Stone Gardens Residents’ Council vice president

DON’T ACCEPT IT. DON’T EXCUSE IT. •

• • •

• •

A longitudinal study at Yale of people 50 years and older showed that people who had more positive self-perceptions of getting older had extended lives of more than seven-anda-half years – much longer than those with negative attitudes about aging, who experienced more memory issues and lower self-esteem. Your age does not define who you are. Don’t let stereotypes convince you otherwise. Retiring from a job or profession doesn’t mean you are retiring from life or giving up your identity. Opting for assisted living instead of remaining in your house doesn’t mean you are throwing in the towel and dropping off the grid. Share your experience. Yours is unique to that of anyone else in the world. Stay in touch with the younger generation. You have much to teach them, and they have much to teach you.

• • •

Be open to new things. Be your ageless self. Don’t silence your voice. Be in charge of your own choices. There are new adventures and memories of a lifetime still to be made.

While society may stereotypically infer that the older people should step aside at this stage and let the younger generation have its day, it doesn’t mean you must adhere. If the full-circle lifecycle of age-ism caught you in its spokes in your youth, or your aging years, it’s time get back up on the seat, kick it in high gear and take the higher road for the ride of your life! At Menorah Park, we defy the stereotypes of age-ism. Hundreds of activities monthly, chef-prepared meals, clubs, councils, outings, lifelong learning and a wide variety of programs keep our residents and clients on the go. We know it works. As we change ourselves, our philosophy and the world around us – by thinking, acting and living differently – we are extending the lives and the quality of life for those we care for.

Know someone new to Cleveland? A Cleveland Jewish News Subscription is a great housewarming gift! “The first week I moved to Cleveland 15 years ago, a friend of a friend – someone I didn’t even know – stopped by my house on Friday morning. She handed me the Cleveland Jewish News and told me to read it – and get a subscription immediately. She said it would be very important. “What great advice for someone new to town! I’ve been a subscriber ever since, and with both the print and digital editions available, I always feel like I’m in the know. I wouldn’t think of going out on a Friday evening – not to Shabbat dinner, not to services, not anywhere – unless I’ve read the CJN. Otherwise, I’d be totally out of the loop!”

The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage IDENTITY, CULTURE & CONNECTION

R

ooted in Jewish heritage, the Maltz Museum promotes cross-cultural dialogue and an appreciation for the diversity of the human experience. While the Museum’s core exhibition An American Story chronicles the Jewish immigrant experience, the challenges these newcomers faced are similar to those of other groups who have sought opportunity in America. The strikingly beautiful artifacts showcased in The Temple-Tifereth Israel Gallery embody Jewish tradition and ritual, but they also highlight the links between Judaism and other faiths. The Museum brings history to life and connects it to the present day through a packed calendar of thought-provoking public programs and an expansive array of rotating exhibitions. The nonprofit shares moving stories of individuals who’ve had the courage to break down societal barriers. It also offers a platform for creative expression and a safe forum to engage in vital cultural conversations. “We take our moniker as a museum of diversity and tolerance to heart,” explains Executive Director Ellen Rudolph. “We see ourselves as a cultural hub and a connector of communities; we offer visitors insights into their own lives through others’ experiences. The more we all understand and respect each other, the less likely we are to discriminate.” Nearly 10,000 students visit the museum annually, gaining insights into historical events that help them envision a brighter future. Another 4,000 passionate teens take a stand against discrimination in the museum’s Stop the Hate® Youth Speak Out and Youth Sing Out anti-bias essay and songwriting competitions. Awarding $100,000 in college scholarships and education grants annually, the competitions not only provide a platform for students to speak out, but they actively encourage students to develop solutions to effect positive change in their schools and communities. Concerts, panel discussions, plays, film screenings and thought-provoking exhibitions attract visitors of all ages and backgrounds. Our newest special exhibition, “Beyond Chicken Soup: Jews & Medicine in America,” has received local and national media attention, from the Cleveland Jewish News and Plain Dealer to the Washington Post and Tablet Magazine. Join us for an education on the historic fight for equality in healthcare and a look to the future of medicine in America. “Beyond Chicken Soup: Jews & Medicine in America” tells the story if how Jews were forced to create access to their own health care in the face of discrimination. Featuring more than 200 artifacts, photographs and documents, including highlights from Cleveland’s own Mt. Sinai Hospital. On view now through April 8. The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage is located at 2929 Richmond Road in Beachwood. Open Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and open late on Wednesday until 9 p.m. For more information, please visit www.maltzmuseum.org or call 216-593-0575.

DIFFERENCE MAKERS 2017

Difference Makers inspire, motivate at right time

F

or Northeast Ohio, there are people in our community – friends, neighbors, colleagues, congregants and relatives – whose lives personify tikkun olam. At the Cleveland Jewish News, we call them Difference Makers, and it’s my privilege to acquaint you with the 2017 class. Like the Difference Makers before them, they help form the fabric of our community. Whatever their role – doctor, lawyer, judge, educator, business owner, board member, realtor, marketer, advocate or financial planner – they embody qualities such as leadership and compassion, often selflessly giving of their time, treasure and talent to better society. The CJN is proud to present just a fraction of what impels this year’s 18 Difference Makers to give back and do good. Inspiring? Motivating? Generous? Action-oriented? You bet they are! We’ll honor them, along with our Lifetime Achievement Award Honoree, Norma Geller; our Civic Leadership Honoree,

Darrell A. Young; and our Generation Award Honorees, Drs. Jeffrey and Lee Ponsky and Zachary Ponsky. We’ll hear their stories, and it’s my hope that each of them will prompt each of us to do our part to repair the world – our world – and leave things better than we found them for future generations.

Kevin S. Adelstein Kevin S. Adelstein is publisher and CEO of the Cleveland Jewish News and president of the Cleveland Jewish Publication Company.

Norma Geller Lifetime Achievement Award

F

rom helping the less fortunate to aiding those with medical needs, tikkun olam, or repairing the world, has been an integral part of Norma Geller’s life. Those who’ve benefited from her compassion, selflessness and generosity are connected to institutions such as B’nai Jeshurun Congregation, Jewish Federation of Cleveland, John Carroll University, The Gathering Place, Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals of Cleveland, Cleveland Clinic and the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. Those efforts to better the community are just some of the reasons why she was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for 2017 at the third annual Cleveland Jewish News Difference Makers on Nov. 19 at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights. At the root of Geller’s philanthropic ways is a modest upbringing. She grew up in a working-class neighborhood in Cleveland Heights, and following World War II, she and her husband, Albert, received a helping hand to get started in life. “Al and I both came from humble beginnings,” said Geller, who will turn 85 in December. “When we came back from the army, we had $300 to our name. My father-in-law lent us some money to buy a little house in South Euclid. “(Today,) I drive a 1991 Buick Riviera with 34,000 miles and I have an old flip phone. These shiny new cars and all kinds of fancy gadgets really don’t make any difference to me. I’d rather help people.” And help people she has. Geller, who left The Ohio State University in Columbus after one quarter, returned to college in 1978 as a 45-year-old freshman at John Carroll University in University Heights. “My first day on campus, I said, ‘Am I crazy? What am I doing?’ A 45-year-old Jewish woman starting my education. (But) I never left the university.” In fact, her involvement evolved over the years. Today, JCU’s department of sociology and criminology hosts the annual Albert I. and Norma C. Geller Lecture Series, and in 2015, she was awarded JCU’s Alumni Medal, which recognizes an individual’s accomplishments in their profession, contributions to their community and dedicated service to the school post-graduation. She’s also involved in the Jesuit university’s Labre Project, which is named for Saint Benedict Joseph Labre, the patron saint of homeless people. “I feed the homeless with the students on their Labre Project and I’m the oldest person,” she said. “One of their greatest needs was for boots. I gave them funds so that no homeless person we come in contact with should be cold, and I’ve seen them in new boots – they call them ‘Norma boots.’” Geller graduated from JCU after nine years, and after one year off, she enrolled at the Case Western Reserve University Mandel School of Applied Social Science. She became an oncology social worker, and in 1991, she became a social worker in the former Mt. Sinai Hospital in Cleveland in radiation therapy. That same year, her life changed forever. By participating in a study, she was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer. “It was a fluke,” she said. “So, it took me on a new journey.” Geller had surgery at a Pittsburgh hospital where her son, David, works, but she credits Dr. Aric Greenfield, who gave her chemotherapy 26 years ago at the then-Ireland Cancer Center (now UH Seidman Cancer Center) and helped save her life.

“Everyone dies from ovarian cancer,” Geller said. “I feel so blessed that G-d kept me alive. I’ve always felt His plan for me was to stay alive to take care of Al, and that’s what I’m doing.” That’s why she endows the Norma C. and Albert I. Geller Designated Professor of Ovarian Cancer Research at CWRU School of Medicine, as well as transportation funds at UH, and is working on endowing one at the Clinic. “No cancer patient should have to worry about getting treatment,” she said. “When I volunteered at UH for 20 years, some people weren’t showing up (for appointments), and with radiation therapy, you have to go every day for five or six weeks. (If) you don’t have anybody who can drive you, and if you have to stand around waiting for a bus in the winter, you’re not going to do it when you don’t feel good.” The transportation funds are used to provide rides and parking. Geller and her husband also left their mark on the Jewish community at CWRU when they made the lead gift for the Albert and Norma Geller Hillel Student Center. “The commitment that Norma and Albert Geller made to name the Hillel Student Center made that project possible,” CWRU President Barbara R. Snyder said. “Their generosity helped demonstrate the importance of a prominent, modern space for a Hillel on our campus and others throughout Greater Cleveland. Their leadership helped persuade others to give and transform an appealing concept into a thriving reality.” The Gellers have been married for 64 years and once owned Fish Furniture. (Their son, Daniel, owns it now). Geller, who has visited Israel seven times, is also a Lion of Judah in Florida, where she and her husband have had a home since the early 1980s, and the couple received the George W. Crile Sr. Award from Cleveland Clinic. On top of all she continues to contribute to our society, she also manages the declining health of Albert. “Al and I have always been a team,” Geller said. “Since his retirement, I have looked after him, making sure he is safe, content as much as possible, and that he remains proud of his accomplishments. I will always be there for him no matter what his declining health presents.” With everything Geller has faced and accomplished, how does she want to be remembered? “As somebody who cares deeply about my family, my friends, the world and our community – not just our Jewish community but the global community as well,” she said. – Bob Jacob

Darrell A. Young Civic Leadership Award

W

hen Darrell A. Young talks about his civic engagement, he constantly references his family, friends, colleagues and local institutional leaders who helped pave the way for his own leadership, as well as his good fortune throughout his life. “It is just too easy to sit back and enjoy whatever your lot in life is,” he said. “I think everyone has a responsibility to leave what we were given in a better place and (in) better conditions.” Growing up in Beachwood, Young said his first associations with the Jewish community were hearing his parents discuss giving to the Jewish Federation of Cleveland. In high school, he helped with the Federation’s Campaign for Jewish Needs, where he identified high schoolers who may want to be involved, demonstrating early leadership skills. Then, when Young returned to the Cleveland-area after graduating from The Ohio State University in Columbus and began his real estate career, he jumped back into volunteering with the Federation, which led to further involvement with other local organizations. Fast forward to now, Young’s community leadership involvement is extensive. He’s past board chair of the Mandel Jewish Community Center in Beachwood, and chairs its facilities committee; a past board chair of both the Montefiore Housing Corp. and the Montefiore Foundation in Beachwood; among other Federation roles, immediate past chair of its properties committee; a board member and former chair of the real estate committee of the Playhouse Square Foundation and he’s board chair of Ohio City Improvement Corp’s special improvement district’s board. He’s also hoping to begin serving on University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center’s leadership committee soon. Specific to the Jewish community, Young said chairing the Federation’s allocations committee, which divvies up each year’s campaign funds to various local, national and international agencies, years ago helped him develop an insider’s view of the different programs in Jewish Cleveland and the impact they make, even if funding is limited. “You sort of have to be very cold to not want to say, ‘let’s make this better,’” he said, adding that agency leaders’ passion for their causes also make giving back “contagious.” Looking beyond the Jewish community, Young also has a stake in improving the greater Cleveland community. He said while the positive attention Cleveland’s received recently for its dominant sports teams is important, it’s also essential to recognize the role of its top-tier hospitals and arts institutions, and the hard-working people behind them, in building the city that’s come so far. He said such people inspire him to do more, and he’s gravitated toward friends who fall into that category. “If I sit at a table at dinner, or look at the people I travel with, or the people I talk to who I call my closest friends, if you look at how they spend their time, all these people in their own ways have contributed to making our community better,” he said. Moreover, while Young said he’s equally passionate about all the Jewish institutions he’s involved with, among non-Jewish institutions, he’s particularly fond of Playhouse Square. “What Playhouse Square has meant to Cleveland, Greater

Cleveland and the leadership, is just so incredibly special,” he said. “Those are people who made an incredible difference in my life.” One may also wonder how Young finds time to serve in so many leadership roles. There, he credits his family, friends and coworkers who inspire him and are willing to “cover” for him when he’s doing his community deeds. “The truth is, I need those three things to make it all work,” he said, adding that his job as CEO at Darrell A. Young Enterprises LLC, a real estate, construction management and consulting organization, allows him to merge some aspects of his volunteer and work life together. His work has benefitted organizations like Montefiore, Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple, the Federation, the Mandel JCC and Hillel. For those looking to build their civic leadership skills, Young said it’s important to not be intimidated – send that email, make that phone call, or join that committee that interests you. He said often, people are intimidated by financial commitments associated with such positions, and while such commitments exist, they aren’t as prohibitive as some might imagine and agency leaders are always looking for interested people. “Not to say there won’t be financial commitments, but don’t be intimidated,” he said. “These people, they get it – they are wonderful people, and they are looking for people who are willing to give themselves and their time.” Thus far, Young knows he’s tried to do his part, but knows it’s always possible to do more – given the resources and time, of course. “I would certainly like to have more financial resources, because if I had them, I’d give my money away,” he said. It’s this and so much more of what he contributes to our civic community, why Darrell A. Young is the 2017 Civic Leadership Award recipient. – Amanda Koehn

Dr. Jeffrey, Dr. Lee and Zachary Ponsky GENERATION AWARD

Z

achary Ponsky is a partner with Midwest Development Partners, and is the founder and board president of Medworks, which helps the underserved access health care in the region and provides pop-up free clinics. He was also the first volunteer for MedWish International, a nonprofit that repurposes discarded medical supplies and equipment in developing countries, when he was in high school. His brother, Dr. Lee Ponsky, is chief of urologic oncology and professor of urology at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, and is the founder and board president of MedWish. Their father, Dr. Jeffery Ponsky, professor of surgery and director of developmental endoscopy at Cleveland Clinic, is on the board of directors at Medworks and volunteers with MedWish. Dr. Jeffery Ponsky said his sons never needed any prodding from him to do the right thing. “They didn’t need any encouragement,” he said. “They picked up the bit and took it in their mouth and ran with it, so to speak. They saw the need and filled it – I was happy to assist in any way, but it was their vision.” Zachary Ponsky echoed his father’s sentiments when asked what advice he would give to others looking to make an impact. “Find a need and fill it,” he said, adding that people need to open their eyes to find where there are needs in the community. Though each of the Ponskys has his own focus in the community, all three – along with Dr. Jeffery Ponsky’s wife and the sons’ mother, Jackie, whom Dr. Lee Ponsky described as “the glue and grounded-ness” that allowed such values to pass through the family – have been by each other’s sides throughout all endeavors. However, Dr. Lee Ponsky said they don’t stop to congratulate themselves on the work they do. “We never step back and pat ourselves on the back,” he said. “We have people ask us if we can believe what we’re doing or what we have accomplished, and we never do that, we always ask ‘what else can we be doing?’ “I’m proud of the fact that we grew up in a community that’s supported our efforts, and now that I have children, I’m

glad that we grew up in a family with values of taking action and helping other people. It’s about giving back, not just financially but in our actions, and I’m proud to see our future generations – our kids have a desire to continue that. I think that’s the best gift we can give, and I think our children will be proud of the legacy we have continued, going back to my grandmother.” Dr. Jeffery Ponsky said many good people helped him make a difference in the community. “I’ve had a lot of good people around me,” he said, specifically citing his father-in-law, Leo Goldberg, and his brother-in-law, Bobby Goldberg. “A lot of good role models.” Zachary Ponsky also credited his mother and grandmother for instilling in him his sense of tikkun olam, but wasn’t satisfied to rest on his laurels. “Success for me is a never-ending journey,” he said. “It’s still a work in progress.” – Ed Carroll
