Get Started

Funded by The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati and seven private families, and coordinated through the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati. Create Your Jewish Legacy is a program that trains and supports our Jewish day schools, agencies, and congregations in the area of legacy giving to ensure the future of the Jewish community in Cincinnati. For our first two years, 2015-2016, we were awarded a highly selective grant and partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation's LIFE & LEGACY program, which also helps to support the CYJL program and all the participating organizations . Our work is ongoing: our first group of 12 organizations is on their third year, and our second group of 11 organizations started in 2017.
