Howard Husock tells the story of how a private Jewish charity gave his father an opportunity for a very different life than one might expect for an orphan in the 1930s. Howard is the author of the upcoming book, “Who Killed Civil Society: The Rise of the Social Service State and the Decline of Bourgeois Norms.”
