New York, NY - April 21, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

New York City-based real estate investor and developer Jacob Frydman is proud of his own Jewish heritage, and is extending his hand to those less fortunate by pledging a massive $180,000 starting donation to the NCFJE organization. Frydman was Guest of Honor at the organization's 76th Annual Awards Dinner, which took place at the Edison Hotel Ballroom in Manhattan, and lent enthusiastic support to the organization's work in the Jewish community. The real estate mogul, a frequent guest on major news networks, punctuated his enthusiastic support of the NCFJE with a pledge of $180,000. The room was electrified by Frydman’s announcement and his commitment to charity, philanthropy, and kindness.

In a recorded statement, Jacob Frydman praised the organization's flagship Jewish Released Time Program, which sends hundreds of volunteers across metropolitan New York to teach Jewish public school students. "Find me another organization that mobilizes, literally, an army of young men and women... to engage Jewish children all over metro New York, week after week..." He also praised the Machon LeYahadus, the organization's advanced Jewish Studies program for women, which he called "forward thinking" and "ground breaking”. "The National Committee was decades ahead of the rest of the Jewish world, to recognize that there were young ladies, and many of them... thirsting for that knowledge."

NCFJE Chairman, Rabbi Shea Hecht said: "We really could not be more happy with our relationship with Mr. Frydman. He has shown a real concern for the welfare of the community at large, and is the kind of guy that really wants to help. You would think that someone involved with such massive projects is very removed from the concerns of the community, but Jacob is not like that at all. He is just an incredibly warm and loving person. I'm really impressed with him."

"I’m the kind of guy - I do things right, I do things with impact, or I don’t do them," said Jacob Frydman, "I feel very fortunate to have discovered an organization that shares my approach."

NCFJE was founded in 1941 by the Previous Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Schneersohn to teach Torah to public school students through the Jewish Released Time Program. The organization is responsible for running 37 separate social, religious and educational programs, including Jewish Summer Camps, TOYS for Hospitalized Children, Food Pantry in Brooklyn, Anti Shmad, ILTSF (formerly known as ILTSE), and Operation Survival. In recent years, the organization has turned its focus upon the economically disadvantaged families in its home community of Crown Heights.

Digital Life: Cutting back on a constant smartphone habit

May 23, 2018

NEW YORK — Why are we checking Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, then Facebook again when we just wanted to check the weather? Turns out, smartphone addiction is by design. Think of the constant stream of notifications, color schemes in apps and all the "likes," followers and in-game trophies. Our phones and apps are designed to give us short-term, feel-good rewards, so we'll use them longer — at the expense of reading, enjoying the moment or simply being bored. Some companies are relenting in response to concerns from customers and experts. Google's next operating system , for instance, will come with a...

Mississippi: Up to 7,000 bodies from asylum may be in field

May 23, 2018

STARKVILLE, Miss. — Some of the boxes stacked inside anthropologist Molly Zuckerman's laboratory contain full bones — a skull, a jaw, or a leg. Others contain only plastic bags of bone fragments that Zuckerman describes as "grit." These humble remains are among as many as 7,000 bodies that were buried at Mississippi's former insane asylum, a site that's now on the grounds of the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. Researchers are planning to exhume the bodies, create a memorial and study them for insight on how the mentally ill and other marginalized populations should be treated today. "The...

Hawaii geothermal plant plugs wells as lava flows nearby

May 23, 2018

PAHOA, Hawaii — Production wells at a geothermal plant under threat by lava flowing from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano have been plugged to prevent toxic gases from seeping out. Lava from a nearby, new volcanic vent entered, then stalled, on the 815-acre (330-hectare) property where the Puna Geothermal Venture wells occupy about 40 acres (16 hectares). Residents have been concerned about hazards if the lava flowed over the plant's facilities, or if heat generated would interact with various chemicals used on-site. Ten wells were "quenched" by cooling them with enough cold water to counter the pressure of volcanic steam coming from...

Comcast v. Disney: a fight for Twenty-First Century Fox

May 23, 2018

PHILADELPHIA — Comcast may make an offer for Twenty-First Century Fox, potentially putting it in a head-to-head bidding war with Disney. Comcast Corp. on Wednesday did not provide specific details on a bid, other than to say that it would be all cash and at a premium to the value of Disney's current all-stock offer. The Wall Street Journal and others reported earlier this month that Comcast had $60 billion to challenge Disney. Disney's $52.4 billion bid would go a long way in allowing it to better compete with technology companies in the entertainment business. Any tie-up would put in...

Malaysia says search for MH370 to end next week

May 23, 2018

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — The search by a private U.S. company for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 will end next week, Malaysia's transport minister said Wednesday, while families of those who died onboard urged the government to review all matters related to the jet's disappearance four years ago. Malaysia signed a "no cure, no fee" deal with Texas-based Ocean Infinity in January to resume the hunt for the plane, a year after the official search in the southern Indian Ocean by Australia, Malaysia and China was called off. So far, the search has not turned up anything that could shed light...
