Concern over the name of this interview series

Dear Rabbi Burg

First, THANK YOU for all that you do and have done for AISH and the Jewish Community.

I happened to watch your interview with Adam Milstein on your "Good With Money" and thoroughly enjoyed it.

However, I must admit that when I first came across the series, my initial reaction was, "OMG, why would a Jewish Website have something titled "Good with Money?" To be perfectly candid, I believe had this been a non-Jewish site in which Jews were interviewed, I would have thought "how could this seemingly antisemitic trope be used as a title? It might even have been immediately condemned by Jewish organizations.

Imagine what non-Jews might think if they came across the Aish Site and saw this title - "Ah hah, even Jewish Web Sites are promoting how good Jews are with money!"

Obviously this is not your or Aish's intent. I assumed of course, that the intent of the title might be to convey "doing good with money," but at first glance, it certainly doesn't come across that way. And I believe it sends a bad and unintended message.

I would therefore respectfully ask you and Aish to consider the possibility of changing the title - perhaps to something like "Using Success To Build a Better World" or just "Doing Good."

Perhaps you may not agree. But I was just so taken aback by the title that I felt I had to share my thoughts with you and Aish.
