Legacy is what you leave behind for your loved ones, and your community. By making a legacy gift, you invest in your values and make a difference in Jewish lives, year after year. It’s easy to do. It’s revocable at any time. There are many ways to do it, but when your gift comes through, you will be supporting the Jewish community forever.
