We grew up in homes where involvement in the Jewish community and the general community was a given. We saw our parents work hard to make the Jewish community better through their involvement in the synagogues we attended, in Jewish Communal organizations and by fundraising on behalf of Israel. Our involvement in our Jewish community is a natural extension of our childhood. We take pride in following the example that our parents have set for us in wanting to make the Jewish community better for us and our children. We do the same today with hope that we will make the Jewish community better for our children and their children. And someday, we hope that our children will also join us in the Endowment Book of Life.
