To benefit the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention (CHIP) and the IU-Kenya partnership, Ron Katz of Indianapolis firm Katz & Korin will host his annual Ronnie's Rosh Hashanah Run & Walk on Labor Day, Sept. 3, in Carmel.

Each year, the run benefits two charities, and a check to the charity of the runner or walker's choice goes directly to the charity through Katz. This year the two charities are Indiana University Foundation (IU/Kenya Partnership), which focuses on HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention in Kenya, and/or CHIP, which is working to end homelessness in Indianapolis.

The run will begin at 9 a.m. at West Park in Carmel. The park is about 1/4 mile west of Towne Road on the north side of 116th Street. The course is about 5K. Participants are asked to respond to Katz by Aug. 22 along with their T-shirt size: XXL, XL, L, M, or S.

Katz' partners at Katz & Korin support this event by joining Katz in underwriting 100 percent of the costs associated with it.

The requested minimum contribution is $50 per person. One could write a check to each charity or a check to just one. Lower amounts for donations are also accepted for participants. Breakfast will be served following the run and walk.

Ronnie's Rosh Hashanah Run began as a way of commemorating the Jewish New Year (which will mark year 5768 on the Jewish calendar as the sun sets Sept. 12) by supporting organizations that excel in their mission of tikkun olam, repairing the world.

If you cannot participate but wish to contribute to the IU/Kenya Partnership and/or CHIP, mail check(s) to Katz: Ronald M. Katz, Katz & Korin PC, The Emelie Building, 334 N. Senate Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46204-1708.

For more information about the run, Katz can also be reached by his e-mail.

  1. Sociologist of religion Peter Berger once said that the US is a “nation of Indians ruled by Swedes.” He meant an irreligious elite ruling a religious people, as that Sweden is the world’s least religious country and India the most religious. The idea is that American social elites tend to be much less religious than just about everyone else in the country. If this is true, it helps explain the controversy raking Indiana over Hollywood, San Fran, NYC, academia and downtown Indy hot coals. Nevermind logic, nevermind it is just the 1993 fed bill did, forget the Founders, abandon of historic dedication to religious liberty. The Swedes rule. You cannot argue with elitists. They have the power, they will use the power, sit down and shut up or feel the power. I know firsthand, having been dealt blows from the elite's high and mighty hands often as a mere religious plebe.

  2. I need helping gaining custody of my 5 and 1 year old from my alcoholic girlfriend. This should be an easy case for any lawyer to win... I've just never had the courage to take her that far. She has a record of public intox and other things. She has no job and no where to live othe than with me. But after 5 years of trying to help her with her bad habit, she has put our kids in danger by driving after drinking with them... She got detained yesterday and the police chief released my kids to me from the police station. I live paycheck to paycheck and Im under alot of stress dealing with this situation. Can anyone please help?

  3. The more a state tries to force people to associate, who don't like each other and simply want to lead separate lives, the more that state invalidates itself....... This conflict has shown clearly that the advocates of "tolerance" are themselves intolerant, the advocates of "diversity" intend to inflict themselves on an unwilling majority by force if necessary, until that people complies and relents and allows itself to be made homogenous with the politically correct preferences of the diversity-lobbies. Let's clearly understand, this is force versus force and democracy has nothing to do with this. Democracy is a false god in the first place, even if it is a valid ideal for politics, but it is becoming ever more just an empty slogan that just suckers a bunch of cattle into paying their taxes and volunteering for stupid wars.

  4. I would like to discuss a commercial litigation case. If you handle such cases, respond for more details.

  5. Great analysis, Elizabeth. Thank you for demonstrating that abortion leads, in logic and acceptance of practice, directly to infanticide. Women of the world unite, you have only your offspring to lose!
