“I can’t help but take a business approach as to how and where we spend our resources. When it comes to our personal finances, I want to be able to get the best returns. We’ve made a conscious decision to employ our philanthropic resources similarly. That’s why we invest our time and our money in JF&CS.” 
- Ruth & Bill Weinstein, Tree of Life Society Members
