There are wealthy people in the world who are selfish, and who only think about themselves, their own pleasure and their own possessions.
But they are some wealthy individuals who understand that their money was given to them by the Master of the Universe in order for them to serve as holy agents for the sake of Am Yisrael. They give generously and they give generously joyously.
This was Dr. Irving Moskowitz z"l, together with his wife Cherna, may she be granted a long and good life.
He was a G-d-fearing man, who fulfilled the Mitzvot and always remembered the Torah's warning: "Your silver and gold will multiply, and all that is yours will multiply, and then your heart will be lifted up and you will forget Hashem, your G-d. And you will say in your heart: 'My power and the might of my hand has gotten me this wealth'" (Devarim 8:13-14, 17). But he himself fulfilled the continuation of the verse: "But you will remember Hashem, your G-d, for it is He that gives you power to get wealth" (ibid. verse 18).
Dr. Moskowitz donated tens of millions of dollars to build Eretz Yisrael, and his actions remind one of the great man, Baron de Rothschild - "The Known Generous One" - z"l. He donated to building up East Jerusalem, Yehudah and the Shomron. He donated to Chesed organizations and to victims of natural disasters.
He was both modest and humble, lacking the habits of the wealthy, and pleasant and gentle.
May his soul be bound up in the bonds of life with all of the Tzadikim, and may Hashem grant long and good days to his devoted wife, Mrs. Cherna, who was with him in this holy work, and continues in this holy work.
