Why Leave a Legacy?

In one way or another, your life is rooted in experiences connecting you to Jewish communities. Chances are you already support Jewish charitable organizations, but have you included them in your will or long-term giving plan? Creating your own Jewish legacy empowers you to further the work of your heart and to enjoy the peace of mind that it brings.

You can:

  • Pass on the values instilled in you by your parents and grandparents.
  • Perpetuate the Jewish traditions and values you cherish.
  • Preserve the programs and organizations that support Jewish life in Northeastern New York and overseas.
  • Express your commitment to the Jewish community.

By leaving your legacy gift, you help ensure the values and services of Jewish organizations that you care about will be part of our community long into the future. It’s a meaningful, personal way to honor loved ones and teach your children and grandchildren the value of philanthropy.

Let us help you leave a legacy. Contact us today for a no-obligation, confidential conversation.


I've lived most of my life as an involved Jew in the Capital District--believing strongly in our faith, living our values, and the importance of teaching our children and caring for others and acts of kindness. I have Israeli dance and Jewish music in my soul. At time of grave illness and loss, it was my Jewish faith and community that pulled me through. For these reasons and more, I wish my legacy to give support to a future thriving Jewish community in the Capital District.”
