Rabbi Eliyahu Fink had this heartwarming tidbit about Japan disaster relief on his blog.
I just bumped into one of my (Jewish) Law School professors and he told me something worth sharing.
He was reading an article about the Japan disaster fund. Donations are coming in from all over the world. In the article, a Japanese government official was quoted [paraphrase] with this little gem:
“Why do so many people send donations of $18? It’s such a strange number for a donation.”
