Englewood Mayor Michael Wildes
At a Jewish National Fund briefing
at his Manhattan law firm, Mayor Michael Wildes of Englewood, N.J., mentioned
the blue and white pushkeh (charity box) his mom kept in the kitchen.
The star of TV’s Barney
Miller and spokesman for JNF, recalled how his mom used to lift him up
so he could drop a coin in the pushkeh, er pishkeh, on the butcher’s
block. The kid would cry that his nickel was gone and mom would say, "It’s
alright, they’re building a country for the Jews."
