Here is an unusual pitch for one of my favorite charities, American Jewish World Service. AJWS is about reaching out to the world at large in order to heal the world and repair its brokenness. It does so from a Jewish place and with a Jewish heart. It for example reached out to Haiti after its devastating earthquake and responded to the Indian Ocean tsunami. The AJWS continues to spearhead the campaign to end the genocide in Darfur. When reaching out to the world I choose the American Jewish World Service.
