Jews and money are in the news in these days of economic downturn, whether impressive philanthropy – in the tradition of our young friend on the cover handing over his life savings to help fellow Jews – or embarrassing scoundrels. If money makes the world go ‘round, as the “Cabaret” song about 1930s Berlin says, what about the Jewish world?
