Robert Kraft Prostitution Scandal Prompts
Prominent Genesis Prize Board Member to Resign
Genesis Prize advisory board member Rivka Carmi resigned from
her position to protest the foundation’s decision to uphold honors
for New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft despite his recent
arrest for soliciting prostitution, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Camri, who is an Israeli geneticist and former president
of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, said the decision was
consistent with her ethics, as she has been a longtime advocate
for women’s empowerment. She said the prize was damaged
enough — and she didn’t want to make things worse — but “I am
supporting women on all levels and all aspects.”

Stan Polovets, chairman and co-founder of the Genesis Prize
Foundation, previously told the Post the prize would not be rescinded.

“Robert was selected for decades of extraordinarily generous
philanthropy, his unwavering support of Israel and unparalleled
success in his field of work — professional sports. Israel doesn’t
have a better friend than Robert Kraft,” he said. “The incident
reported last week is unfortunate. However, as of now, it remains
an unproven allegation.”

The award ceremony is slated for June 20, with Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu presenting the Genesis Prize to Kraft. l

A Mitzvah of the Highest Order:
The Dignified Burial Fund

WHEN HARRIETTE DIED last summer at age 75, no one came memory, you will not only be comforting a community member in their time of

mental illness and spent her final days in a nursing home, paid
for by her Social Security checks. Her case manager could find no To send a tribute card, visit
living relatives.

With no one to bury Harriette, her body lay in storage at a funeral
home, embalmed and alone, for nine days. Then her case manager
remembered something important: Harriette had been Jewish.

Burying the dead is often called among the greatest mitzvot
because it is a favor that can never be repaid. Yet each year our
communities experience the deaths of several indigent Jews —
people who cannot afford the cost of even a minimal dignified
Jewish burial, which can cost between $5,000 and $7,000. Jewish
Federation of Greater Philadelphia-supported Jewish Family &
Children’s Service (JFCS) has also noticed a rise in the need for
burial assistance.

For those reasons, Jewish Federation, JFCS and the Jewish
Federation-supported Female Hebrew Benevolent Society (FHBS)
created a plan last year to combine resources, along with local
cemeteries and funeral homes, to provide dignified Jewish burials
for those in need. The plan came together just as we were notified
about Harriette.

On Sept. 25, Harriette was buried in a donated plot in Montefiore
Cemetery, with all funeral arrangements handled at a reduced
cost by Goldstein’s, and the fee split between JFCS, FHBS and
Jewish Federation.

For our part, funds came from our newly-established Dignified Burial Fund,
which began with a $10,000 allocation and is now fed by purchases of our trib-
ute cards. From now on, when you send a tribute card to honor a loved one’s
