From his childhood home on Light Street in Baltimore, Marc Tanenbaum grew up to become a rabbi who fought for human rights all over the world. He defended Jews in the Soviet Union. He negotiated an important document of reconciliation between the Vatican and Jews. He stood with Holocaust survivor Eli Weisel to protest the genocide of Cambodians. Though he died 27 years go, Tanenbaum’s widow Georgette Bennett contends his techniques could help solve today’s issues of intolerance.
