My father’s commitment to the Jewish community was legendary – and contagious. When you would say his name, “Max Fisher,” others involved in the Jewish world would lift their eyes and recount story after story. It felt like he had held a leadership position or given generously to virtually every major Jewish organization, which he had.
Yet, my father’s greatest impact was not made by writing checks, but rather through the power of his example – the way that he consistently demonstrated what it meant to truly embrace your responsibilities to our community as a Jew. He infected me with this powerful sense of purpose.
