I lived in Marland not to far from the school she attended. Charity has always been very big in the Jewish religion. Jewish people do not believe in sending flowers at the time of someone's death. They ask that contributions be made to a specific charity in memory of the departed or to the charity of your choice. On the anniversary of a family member's death, special prayers are said. Usually, a reminder of the date of the death on the Jewish calendar is sent from the temple or synagogue from which you are a member or from which they were buried. At that time a contribution is made to the synagogue or a charity in their memory. Charity has always been a very big part of the Jewish religion, and because of that I am proud to say I am a Jew.

"It mentions ideas about giving to those who are less fortunate and how to do so." I wish they had more ways for people to invest in each other. I think that's what God wants. I know people invest in their children. I wonder if that what he is talking about. We can't neglect the poor and needy, no matter what their age and gender.
