Rabbi Joshua Hammerman, líder del templo Beth El en Stamford (USA) escribió una carta pidiendo que se expulse a Bernard Madoff del pueblo judío:
There have been many who have done more harm to Jews. To my knowledge, Madoff has not killed anyone (update: Rene-Thierry Magon de la Villehuchet committed suicide on Tuesday, after the hedge fund he operated lost $1.4 billion because of Madoff). But the foundations and charities he has harmed irreparably will prevent people from getting needed health care or educational assistance, will likely keep Jewish youth from rediscovering their identities and aged Holocaust survivors from recording their stories. Mark Charendoff of the Jewish Funders Network described it to “The Forward” in near apocalyptic terms, as “an atomic bomb in the world of Jewish philanthropy.” An apocalyptic crime calls for an unprecedented response.
But the greatest damage done by Madoff has been to Judaism itself.
