Today is the first day of the Jewish month of Kislev - the month best known for Hanukah. Since Hanukah is really all about the kids today - dreidel games and presents - the charities suggested are for kids too. TAPS is an organization that helps the surviving family members of US armed forces who have been killed in the line of duty. I never had heard of it before but the web site explains all the remarkable work they do. Of course the other charity - Children's National Medical Center - is one of the best children's hospitals in the country. I encourage you to consider making a donation to either organization this month. Happy Hanukah!
