The Yeshivah’s Mailing Card
By Onitaset Kumat
A very trusted friend of mine showed me a card that she received in the mail box. It was for a private K-8 school of less than one-hundred-fifty-students. The card invited her to a public forum and had many Hebrew letters that makes a complete deciphering difficult. It openly welcomes the reader into this European Jews’ home to discuss this Yeshivah. In addition, it welcomes donations. The small boxes ask for monetary amounts of, wait for it, “$36,000,” “$18,000,” “$10,000,” “$5,000,” “$3,600,” “$2,500,” “$1,000,” “$500,” “$250,” “$100,” and “Other.” I’ll repeat: $36,000. This grandiose request shows the importance of education and organization in the European Jewish community. This should be instructive. For how many organizations send you unrequested mail then ask for more than $100 dollars?
Readers. Please share examples as to why you conceive that we ought be serious about Organization. The rest of us will enjoy reading them.
