Episode 53 - Brian Prousky: The Spirited, Creative Man Running Jewish Family & Child Service
It's a big deal to be the executive director of the Jewish Family & Child Service (JF&CS) in Toronto. It is because JF&CS is the most important organization in the Jewish community, more important than the kashruth (kosher), cemetery, or the fundraising office. JF&CS has thirty-three programs all of which are crucial toward assisting the most vulnerable in the Jewish community such as those who: suffer from poverty and require funds; have mental health issues; are mourning and feel alone or are going through a high conflict divorce, etc. Now, what sort of person would run a place like that? No doubt, someone who is highly empathetic, has a Jewish soul, is warm, incredibly bright, disciplined, organized, creative, preferably funny, and well respected. That person is my guest on episode 53, and his name is Brian Prousky. Brian is such a compelling guest as he has all of the above character traits and is colorful, animated and high-spirited, with years of experience in the field and as the boss, and gripping stories to tell. Have a listen. Get insight into Brian as a son, father, husband and lover of Dylan. Hear about a man's great empathy for those in need, and wisdom to impart to his staff, many of whom are on the front line of life and working for a place whose mandate is to 'love thy neighbor' - not a simple one. HatRadio! The show that schmoozes. ____________________________________________________________________
