Continuing with our series of charitable donations to groups that exemplify the Soul Traits central to American Mussar, we are proud to announce the Rotary Club of Great Neck, New York as the next recipient of our Point of Light award. Their work with families and others in Great Neck and throughout Long Island exemplifies the Soul Trait of Honor, and we are happy to honor them with this award.
When we honor other, we recognize the Divine Spark we all share, even in our lowest moments. By providing meals to hungry Long Island families and performing other acts of charity and community-building that help to bring people dignity, security, and comfort when they are at their lowest moments, the Rotary Club of Great Neck reminds us that all humans are equally deserving of Honor, and that we must act in order to see that all are honored accordingly.
As an example of their long-running work in the Great Neck community, this past year the Rotary Club provided full Thanksgiving meals to more than 1,000 families in need—an effort supported not only by Rotary Club members but by donations from the larger community as well. American Mussar honors everyone who helped achieve this goal, and the Rotary Club for its many years of similar service and for continuing to organize action that makes us all aware of the Honor we owe each other.
