Good to Know

The other day, Brandeis University’s newspaper, the Justice (both my alma maters)sent out an e-mail blast re-assuring us all that Brandeis’ endowment is safe, despite the havoc wreaked on Jewish philanthropy worldwide by Bernie Madoff.
Apparently the Shapiro family- which has its name on the student center, the admissions center, a large freshman dorm, and probably a dozen other buildings on campus- lost a large part of their fortune in the fraud. The university itself, though, had no money tied up with Madoff. Which means that they’re much better run than the New York Mets.
