Ben M. & Rose G. Mandelkorn
My philanthropic interests and contributions, particularly the Jewish community, reflect my life’s works as a professional since 1945.
The Columbus Jewish Foundation represents a unique means to extend and sustain the support of community needs in perpetuity.
What I may have done simply emulates the good deeds of others.
My parents, like so many others, were immigrants. My mother and sister came from Riga Latvia; my father from a country bordering the Soviet Union. He and his family fled to the United States to escape persecution. I, my two brothers and my children are American born, exposed to the multi-cultural, ethnic diversities of the American scene but with full recognition and commitment to the values of our Jewish lineage, religious and historic past.
