This is an old story, but new to me, and well-worth mentioning.
(Wikipedia) When the Malden Mills factory burnt down on December 11, 1995, Aaron Feuerstein decided not only to use his insurance money to rebuild it, but also to pay the salaries of all the now-unemployed workers while it was being rebuilt. Feuerstein spent millions keeping all 3,000 employees on the payroll with full benefits for 6 months. By going against common CEO business practices, especially at a time when most companies were downsizing and moving overseas, he achieved a small degree of fame.
This inspiring video was put together for the NCSY West Coast Spring Regional Conference, 2006. The interviews of Mr. Feruestein came from "60 Minutes." Feuerstein is a member of Young Israel of Brookline.
Mr. Feruestein did the right thing. However, it is important to note that Jewish investments in Galuth NEVER produce the material and spiritual returns that they have the potential to do in Israel.
