The Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty paid a combined $750,000 to two separate CEO’s while its revenue dropped by 30%.
A year after Met Council was rocked by the Willie Rapfogel fraud scandal, the anti-poverty group is reeling again. Would an ultra-Orthodox leader change things for the better?
The Metropolitan Council on Jewish Poverty is considering hiring Rabbi Moshe Wiener, the ultra-Orthodox head of the JCC of Greater Coney Island, to replace departing CEO David Frankel.
The Met Council is losing yet another CEO. David Frankel, who took over in the aftermath of the Willie Rapfogel scandal, will step down by the end of the year.
Less than a week after firing its longtime head William Rapfogel amid a criminal probe, The Metropolitan Council announced today that David M. Frankel will take over the post as Executive Director and CEO.
“Hope Springs,” opening nationally August 8, is centered on a long-married couple whose relationship has gone stale. Kay Soames, played by Meryl Streep, is frustrated by the lack of intimacy in her relationship with her husband Arnold, played by Tommy Lee Jones. Arnold refuses to acknowledge that anything is wrong and resists her efforts to visit marriage counselor Bernard Feld (a brilliant Steve Carell). Feld’s attempts to put a spark back in their lives lead to several humorous and, uh, intimate scenes that come close to mandating adults-only viewing.
