And when you use that word, you move it past a second degree murder case. Nobody is alleging that this is an aggravated first degree murder case. In July 2019, Berkeley shot Stephen white marsh twice at close range after white marsh had rear ended Berkeley's car, a jury found Berkeley guilty of second degree murder, Matthew Pittman with the snohomish county prosecutor's office tells the appeals court the word was an appropriate description of the defendant's behavior.

"It doesn't look like this is a much bigger issue. If the question of like ways in which jewish organizations jewish institutions can take a stance on what whole issues when really both sides is not a good answer and i think a lot of institutions might be afraid of alienating members of elliot donors by taking a stance or even of losing their five zero one c three status. If they do it to openly perhaps. But we're obviously talking here about a history of jewish flattery. But when you place philanthropy in its context and then we think about the way in which those contexts are changing in particular the broad issues that are taking place in american society changing perspectives on capitalism especially by a younger generation. That as you mentioned is going to have this tremendous wealth transfer over the next few decades. But does this mean in terms of the changing face of jewish philanthropy. Potentially going forward really really hard to say. I take a lot of hope from the fact that it appears that there is a more robust conversation than i can ever recall about philanthropy in american jewish life in and beyond you know part of this is thanks to some lawsuits and you know different families. Such as the sackler been disinvited from participating in philanthropy because of the ways in which their money might have been made but deeper questions about the role of money in the american political process. That the koch brothers have pushed to the fore. I think that there is more hunger to understand a system that you know as i said in the beginning that had just spoke kind of normal natural inevitable certainly in my own life and i think that there are more people who feel like. Yeah you know. Journalists need to cover this and we need to actually start. Asking policymakers questions about what does it mean to have so much capital. That's warehouse in so many different places in that. That is not being circulated. So i think that there is a more robust kind of conversation and i think that has to bode well for people being able to start to imagine other kinds of questions at the end of the day. One reason it was really important for me. I fell to write. This book is so that people could think about the history of american jewish philanthropy and imagine other questions that they might ask of this system. That seems so large and so you know in certain ways overwhelming like just how things are but there were policy decisions that were made at different times and different decisions could have been made and they still could be made so. I think that it's possible that we whether by will or simply by emergency are reaching kind of point of inflection where our economic system and it's.

"You don't see that same kind of breakdown rate and when you look at the kinds of statements and acts the different american jewish organizations make that they're being so careful to not be political and not be partisan often they're also really thinking about particular major donors that have a politics that are much more to the right than many american jews. So what does that do for kind of system volunteerism it. Unfortunately i think can create a great deal of alienation ya i mean. I think that there are areas in which we conceive. Disconnect generational is speaking on certain key issues relating to the jewish future. I think that this question of who gets to speak for the jews. I mean this is a long standing historical question right. One can go back. Think about in the history of court. Jews right you in early modern europe and what does it mean for different people to positions of leadership where that stems from and what that means. I don't know there's lots of thing about their absolutely and it's not as if there's one form of social organization that is necessarily the silver bullet right. That would necessarily solve this. But i do think that when you have a system that has become less and less participatory that you do. End up conjectured ising the value of lots of different people in a diversity of voices. Feeling like it's worth their while to be part of something that's the real danger. No matter how much power and how much capital you have. It doesn't necessarily solve that but there are a number of other issues standing in the shadows and the big one is anti semitism. I mean there are a couple of different ways in which it's relevant one of them. Is that in a certain way. Anytime that people talk about jews and economic history or jews and money in invites antisemitism right to some extent and so part of the question is how is it that we talk about these issues of philanthropy of jews and capital and using capitalism while dancing around the specter of anti semitism and anti semitic canard's and tropes..

"Particular system. Come to define a mode of generosity. The intellectual project of this book is really asking about how an institution was shaped and how it was formed right. I mean. I think that this is a key distinction that we always seems to be making because critique does not always mean critical right those two words have a linguist relationship to each other but there are different modes of doing this and i think that intellectual critique is really a central animating process that we need to be applied to all aspects of life and all aspects of history even to things which we understand are generally good in their nature. They also have a history like you said they also can be looked from critical perspective without condemning them. Absolutely one of the things. I want to pick up on. Is there a lot of assumptions that center around philanthropy and one of them perhaps is the notion judaism of sadaqa charity. Giving and so on that because it is embedded within judaism people assume that it has no history that kind of been there from ancient times up until the present. But i think the part of what you're doing here which is an important intellectual move to all areas just to say. Well what is history you. How has it changed over time. As opposed to just being this historical unchanging thing so with this in mind what actually is the history of philanthropy whether we're talking about it within jewish life rather speaking within the american jewish context. What actually is the history. And why is it so important to see philanthropy as something which has a history as opposed to just being this thing that exists in the world and always has existed and always will stay the same so one of the puzzles of that question is actually how to define what philanthropy is right so the way i primarily defined it in the book is the divestment of one's private property for the public good but what's really important and actually speaks to..

I'm so excited to share episode as lila points out in her book. Philanthropy is something that touches on all aspects of our lives and we should think critically about how it operates and what that means in historical and cultural terms. I hope you check out the book. And i've also linked to an excerpt. Thanks for listening. Hi lila will help to the podcast. Thanks i'm so glad you could join us to talk about your book which is really. It's just so phenomenal. I think that there are so many different things that we can talk about from this book and all the different issues that it really raises. I think that one place for us to get started really is to think about the manifold ways that philanthropy touches our lives. Well you know when. I started working on this book. Although i realize i had lived a life that was really very much shaped by philanthropy. It wasn't really something given a lot of you know. And then once. I sort of went back to try to create an inventory. I was a little bit shocked. I literally did try to sit. And kind of calculate like okay. How much money has been invested in me. You know my family. My children would ever through philanthropy. You sort of realized it's everywhere in in a sense. Maybe that's why i hadn't seen it that much because we're just seemed natural is just the world i lived in in. It's not just in my world as a person who happens to be jewish but in museums i go to newspapers. I read the radio station. I listen to kind of every facet of my life had some kind of imprint of philanthropy. So like in a certain sense. I think it makes sense that you know. This isn't a topic that people necessarily think of studying that much because it just feels very ubiquitous but then when you kinda take a step back from it and think about well how does this work and why does it feel like it so natural. It's so inevitable you realize like most things. It has a history and this thing that seems like it's so familiar and has always been the way it may appear in our lives today actually has really changed vastly over time and so that was kind of like.
