Toy Story: The $17,500 Birthday Bash
After reading about a $17,500 birthday party that one of his children's Jewish classmates recently held in a Toy Store, the author analyzes Jewish values in accordance with the great amount of wealth that many Jewish families possess today. The author asserts that Jewish people work hard for their money, and also give back to the needy through means of tzedakah. Because of this, it is fine to occasionally indulge in one's own wealth. However, those blessed with such an abundant amount of wealth must act responsibly and use it as a means for dignity and justice.
