My background growing up was filled with the ideals of helping those who were less fortunate. Although, I considered myself as one of them because of the loss of my father when I was 8 years old. My Mother had to provide for her three young daughters without the many skills necessary to have a good paying job, however, she did her best to do the best for us. This instilled a deep desire in me to help at risk children, children with disabilities, animals and those who were considered “others.”
My mother supported this ideal and when I met my husband, both of us had the same core values – social justice and civil rights.
After nearly 55 years of marriage, we still believe in helping others in the Jewish and secular communities through service and philanthropy. WE believe in the importance of a legacy that will continue beyond our time here on earth. It is our hope that the future of the Jewish people remains strong and will thrive for generations to come. WE sign the Endowment Book of Life as a token of our belief along with the love and faith that our children and grandchildren will follow in our footsteps as we have followed the example of our parents.
