In the Jewish religion, boys at the age of 13 participate in this traditional rite of passage, in which they become full-fledged members of the Jewish community with the associated responsibilities. Sam’s donation to Rosener House is an act of generosity that exemplifies his responsibility to the community. We are grateful for his kindness.
In the photo, Sam presents Rosener House Director Barbara Kalt with a check. Also present are Sam’s grandfather, who is a Rosener House participant, and Sam’s mother, Karen.
Thank you, Sam. You’re a real “Mensch!” (“Mensch” is Yiddish for a stalwart individual of character.)
