    Julius Rosenwald never finished high school. But his lack of formal education didn’t stop him from achieving incredible feats. As the president of Sears, Rosenwald used his wealth to become one of America’s most effective philanthropists. Both the Jewish ideals of tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (repairing the world) and the writings of Booker T. Washington inspired Rosenwald to take a stance against racial inequality in America. Working with African American communities, Rosenwald helped build more than 5,300 schools in the Jim Crow South during the early twentieth century. Discover Rosenwald’s incredible story in this inspiring documentary directed by Aviva Kempner. Film provided by The National Center for Jewish Film. (2015, 100 min. No MPAA rating.)
