Why Legacy Giving? 


"I have proudly made a legacy gift to support Jewish day schools.


While I will continue to support the school annually, legacy giving means that I can help ensure that the day school will be funded for generations to come. And to me, that is critical for a strong Jewish community. I can think of no better way to ensure the future of our community than to leave a gift in our wills to a Jewish day school."
