VideosA Modern Jewish Superhero
Webster’s Dictionary defines a hero as a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities or, to put it another way, a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal.
Aaron Feuerstein, owner of Malden Mills, is a modern day hero. After his factory was destroyed by fire, Mr. Feuerstein could have retired for the rest of his life on the multi millions he was slated to collect from the insurance company. No one would have blamed him if that was the route he chose.
Yet based on his understanding of the relevance of the teachings of his youth and his understanding of a 3321 year old document, the Torah, he continued to pay the salaries of his factory during the rebuilding of the factory. More than rebuilding a business, Mr. Feuerstein saved a town and ensured himself, not just a factory for his lifetime, but a palace for eternity.
