Jewish predominance in finance is often used to slander them. As a people, Jews have been extremely generous, civic-minded and philanthropic, yet the stereotypes endure. “There’s a tacit taboo on talking about the relationships connecting Jews and wealth, power and influence. It pushes buttons for some and generally is not mentioned in polite society,” the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco noted recently. The Toronto Star’s Ellen Roseman will look at the image of Jews and money in history and popular culture, trying to set the record straight. She will also give tips on mastering money in your own life. Free event. Light refreshments provided.
