“I learned the importance of philanthropy from my parents. I have been involved in the Cherry Hill Jewish community for over 30 years, on the Cooper Foundation Board for 25 years, have sponsored a reading program for Camden children for 13 summers, and have sponsored a Christmas party for St. Anthony of Padua School in Camden for the last three years. I'm also sending one of their graduates to Camden Catholic High School.”
