Rabbi Jacob Siegel, ’16, Director of Engagement for JLens, an organization that serves as a bridge between the Jewish community and the responsible investing arena, writes:

Kosher and halal slaughter is being vilified in Europe. Here’s what concerned investors can do about it.

Photo-realistic image of the inside of a library. A library with row upon row of shelves filled with books on the left and right walls. Down the middle is an ornate dark brown wooden banister around the entrance to a downward staircase. At the top of the stair case, below the opposite banister is a sign that says "AMERICA AFRICA ASIA AUSTRALASIA" in cream colored blocky font. The 4 corners of the banister have a upwards wooden protrusion shaped like and angular vase. Behind the down stairs entrance are two standing racks, each with 7 horizontal rolls of wrapping paper with a beige circular table. On the table are several indiscernible squarish objects and a tall, green potted plant with bright yellow flowers. Behind the table is a large arched window in a white frame with swirling designs on the outer panes. The walls are charcoal grey and the space through the window is a foggy white with a blurry grey rectangle on the bottom. The floor of the library is an overlapping "V" patterned brown wooden floor. There is an upper balcony above the bookshelves with the same banister as the down stairs entrance and made of a brown wood that is the same color as the bookshelves. The ceiling is solid and cream colored with a skylight shaped like a bottomless rectangular triangle with foggy white light shining through. The books come in a wide colors and sizes but most are roughly the same size and are nestled comfortably in their shelves, their are also several books on the ledge where halfway up the shelves where the remaining top shelves are further back into the wall. There are also two small silver overhanging light fixtures in a curving design that splits into a branch on either side each ending in a light with a flower shaped glass shade. On the right side of the room at the end of the base level and the balcony level is a beige rectangular wooden door. Hanging from the underside of the balcony is an array of simple black metal light fixtures.Rabbi Jordan Soffer ('16) on the cost of Jewish Day School education
