I am writing to add wonderful information about the article on the Levinson family that appeared in your Aug. 22 issue (“Family owned and proud of it”).
I am a board member of the Hebrew Burial and Social Service Society of Maryland. Our function is to give to the area’s poor Jews a proper Jewish burial. Sol Levinson & Bros. for many years has arrange these burials at no cost to our society. They have done everything necessary to be sure that a proper Jewish burial takes place. They do this with no publicity, but as a service to the Jewish Community.
With their support, we are able to use the funds saved for other social services in the Jewish community. There are two words that characterize the Levinsons: They care!
