We all likely know someone who serves as a volunteer for TVAC, Hatzolah, CSS or even a neighborhood watch program. Perhaps you are one of the men and women who choose to be a trained first responder or an important “extra” set of eyes for local police and security agencies.

As we entered mid-week, the good news was that on Wednesday’s day of trading, American stocks were already showing a recovery. And in a Jewish News Service article covering the Brexit vote, Dr. Oded Eran, the former Israeli ambassador to the EU, said that “nothing is going to happen right away (in terms of Israel’s economy).”
