An Open Letter from Charles Bronfman and Jeffrey Solomon
eJewish Philanthropy, July 13, 2011
No matter how sound the takeoff and flight, for a pilot to be successful the landing must be smooth as well. This metaphor captures our thinking as we conclude the work of the Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies during the next five years. However, in thinking about the airplane metaphor, we can’t help but focus on the 747 which carries the space shuttle. It’s not simply landing a plane, it’s doing so in the knowledge that an effective landing will result in continuous launchings, providing benefits for humankind. We are extremely proud of what we have achieved so far, and we want to get it right as we land the plane.
