Why I thought he was an amazing man: When I was about 25, in the late 1970s, I thought of this man as "that hair guy." My brother had his hair cut by students at Vidal's salon, for free, and often arrived home with a rather strange new look. What did I know? I was invited to a luncheon for "young professional women," for the L.A. Jewish Federation, and Vidal was the guest speaker. I was so blase, oblivious to a lot going on around me, but internally Jewish and supportive of Israel without being active about it. Well, everything changed that day. Vidal got up to speak, and like the swami hypnotically elevating his subject, I was mesmerized. He told his story. His upbringing. His commitment to Israel as a teen, going to Israel to fight for Independence, never yielding in remember who he was, a Jew. Then he asked all of us to make a monthly pledge, as much as we could, to support the Jewish Federation, which supported Israel. People started calling out amounts. Even though this was a "young" women's group, I was among the youngest, barely out of school and struggling for a career, earning $13,000 a year. Up I stood and yelled, "$60!" That doesn't sound like a lot, but after taxes, I took home barely enough to pay my rent, car insurance and gas each month without asking for a handout from my parents. I made the first two pledge payments, then talked to my very wise mother. I couldn't make more than $20 a month, and that was going to be hard. She told me to call the Federation and tell them to reduce my payment, they would understand. She also told me, to paraphrase, that Vidal Sassoon was a remarkable Jew who didn't just talk-the-talk, he walked the walk. This was the beginning of my living what I had learned in religious school but never really incorporated into my life until then: tzedakah. I might have come to it in my own way eventually, but it took the inspiration of the most amazing man, Vidal Sassoon, to get me on the road to it sooner. Even in my most difficult days, I have never forgotten to support our people, because of him. May his memory live on in acts of kindness and charity!
