I can’t see the future, can’t imagine the changes that await. How will Judaism be relevant to the new generation? Where will they find value and beauty?
My parents gave me the treasured gifts of Jewish summer camp and an extended trip to Israel. This is where all that I had learned about Judaism came to life and I discovered that Jewish songs reached deep into my soul, Israeli dancing made my spirit soar, and the Jewish people lived in my heart.
With my legacy gift, I want future generations to be able to find their own spirit and love for Judaism; I hope each person will be nourished by a strong and vibrant Jewish community that cares for the vulnerable, honors our shared values, and cherishes our rich traditions.
