By Perry Davis, Margy-Ruth Davis

The authors--self-trained, professional fundraisers with more than fifty years combined experience--reflect on their professional experiences and analyses of nonprofit organizations to address general trends in Jewish philanthropy as well as Orthodox philanthropy in particular. The authors address the similarities among these general trends and Orthodoxy to overall charitable giving, the positive and negative aspects of Orthodox philanthropy, raise practical concerns, and end with several recommendations.
