Tuesdays With Charity

92Y’s executive director on the background and the growth of #Giving Tuesday.

Special To The Jewish Week
11/12/2014

The 92nd Street Y, which is celebrating its 140th anniversary this year, is blessed with a proud tradition of exceptional programs, compassionate outreach and a deep commitment to celebrating and sharing our Jewish values. And like so many other organizations, one of the questions we ask ourselves regularly is this: How do we make these traditional values relevant and meaningful not only for our current community, but for future generations as well? In today’s fast-changing world, with half of the global population 30 or younger, this is perhaps one of the most important challenges for all of us.

‘For all the tweets and technology driving #GivingTuesday, we think its progress is a testament to the power of community.’

Sol Adler, executive director of the 92nd Street Y, got special delight out of paying some bills on the Chase Bank website on Sunday — before logging off, he noticed an announcement for “Giving Tuesday,” a national program under the Y’s auspices that will start next week.
