  1. Two questions:

    Why can’t the men and women at the Homeless shelters paint the building themselves? Such “feel good” efforts on the part of liberals does nothing to help the homeless start to help themselves.

    Second, on this “Mitzvah day,” what did synagogues and Jewish participants do to help the Jewish community? Anyone go to a Seniors home? Did anyone help the Jewish poor, or train Jewish youth in the art of self-defense?
