"Listen, I'm a rabbi, I believe it was destined. No such thing as coincidence here.... Most people would have considered putting everything into one investment stupid.... I guess it was stupid. It was chance, just chance. "

-- Rabbi Myer Kripke

Rabbi Kripke asked Rabbi Davidson how much would it cost to repair the entire tower, and she responded $7 million. "We'd like to do the entire amount," Myer said.

In December 1996, the Kripkes donated $7 million (plus an additional $8 million more was contributed in a deferred gift through family trusts), and the tower was fully repaired in 1997-1998.

And that, as Paul Harvey would say, is the rest of the (beautiful) story.
