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. The fee increase would be livable except for the 11% increase in spending at the Disciplinary Commission. The Commission should be focused on true public harm rather than going on witch hunts against lawyers who dare to criticize judges.

  2. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. AT the time the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was enacted all major pharmaceutical companies in the US sold marijuana products. 11 Presidents of the US have smoked marijuana. Smoking it does not increase the likelihood that you will get lung cancer. There are numerous reports of canabis oil killing many kinds of incurable cancer. (See Rick Simpson's Oil on the internet or facebook).

  3. The US has 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's prisoners. Far too many people are sentenced for far too many years in prison. Many of the federal prisoners are sentenced for marijuana violations. Marijuana is safer than alcohol.

  4. My daughter was married less than a week and her new hubbys picture was on tv for drugs and now I havent't seen my granddaughters since st patricks day. when my daughter left her marriage from her childrens Father she lived with me with my grand daughters and that was ok but I called her on the new hubby who is in jail and said didn't want this around my grandkids not unreasonable request and I get shut out for her mistake

  5. From the perspective of a practicing attorney, it sounds like this masters degree in law for non-attorneys will be useless to anyone who gets it. "However, Ted Waggoner, chair of the ISBA’s Legal Education Conclave, sees the potential for the degree program to actually help attorneys do their jobs better. He pointed to his practice at Peterson Waggoner & Perkins LLP in Rochester and how some clients ask their attorneys to do work, such as filling out insurance forms, that they could do themselves. Waggoner believes the individuals with the legal master’s degrees could do the routine, mundane business thus freeing the lawyers to do the substantive legal work." That is simply insulting to suggest that someone with a masters degree would work in a role that is subpar to even an administrative assistant. Even someone with just a certificate or associate's degree in paralegal studies would be overqualified to sit around helping clients fill out forms. Anyone who has a business background that they think would be enhanced by having a legal background will just go to law school, or get an MBA (which typically includes a business law class that gives a generic, broad overview of legal concepts). No business-savvy person would ever seriously consider this ridiculous master of law for non-lawyers degree. It reeks of desperation. The only people I see getting it are the ones who did not get into law school, who see the degree as something to add to their transcript in hopes of getting into a JD program down the road.
