The strength of our people is our historical commitment to support each other, and to create and strengthen our community. But Judaism doesn’t survive because of just the traditions of its past. It survives because of what each generation does in turn to sustain that commitment. We have been blessed to find wonderful friends and a warm Jewish community in Phoenix. For our children’s Jewish identity to thrive, they too need to discover a strong, vibrant Jewish community. Our gift to the Jewish Community Foundation endowment is the articulation of that wish and we have great confidence that it will come true.
