Ann & Ari Deshe
The idea and the ideal of tzedakah is a foundation of our lives. Since our earliest years, our parents taught us that Judaism is a religion of action, a way of living that places great emphasis on caring for the community and giving back to the community so as to help others.
It is truly a pleasure for us to be able to give something back to the Columbus Jewish community that has been such a wonderful source of education, inspiration and friendship to us and our family.
Our parents, through their examples, showed us the responsibility we all have in keeping our Jewish heritage strong and to support Jewish causes and institutions. We hope that our commitment to the Columbus Jewish Foundation helps future generations to increase their knowledge and love of Judaism and helps our community to grow stronger.
