This week’s Living Torah program from JEM shines a light on the charity of philanthropists Mr. and Mrs. Mel Landau of Miami.
In the My Encounter segment, Rabbi Sholom Ber Lipskar recalls his first meeting with Mr. Landau.
A member of his community, a champion tennis player, invited him to meet his wealthy friend. Bringing his Tefillin along to the tennis courts began a relationship that lasted well beyond that first encounter. In fact, the impact of that meeting is still felt by hundreds of children today.
When Rabbi Lipskar brought Mel and his wife to visit the Rebbe, they learned just how far-reaching their charity really is.
