A Gift of 100 JPS Books for 100 Years

December 3, 2012

David Lerman, JPS Board President, made a very generous gift of 100 JPS books in honor of the 100th birthday of his lifelong family friend, Ted Krause, a thoughtful man whose daily routine still includes full-time work, Torah study and exercise. As a child David had great admiration for Ted, who discovered Torah study in his 40s and has been studying daily ever since.

JPS visited with David and Ted (now going on 102!) to learn about their special relationship and the story behind this meaningful gift.
