Some legacies are written on buildings, others are remembered through awards – yours can be handed down from generation to generation. Making an after-lifetime commitment expresses the values instilled in you by your parents and grandparents. A legacy gift ensures that the traditions and Jewish causes that mean so much to you today will be preserved.
Why wait to think about what your legacy will be? Dream big today. LIFE & LEGACY™ is your opportunity to express your passion, purpose and commitment to our future. It’s easy to do, no matter your age, wealth or inclination. In fact, you can be sure that you already know a friend, neighbor or family member that has already made their commitment.
