Throughout the ages, for Judaism to survive, the needs steadily increase with each passing year. While we see the act of giving as a mitzvah, it is during this time of renewed worldwide anti-Semitism, a critical necessity as well. The survival of Israel has never been more crucial to our own survival as American Jews.
We feel so fortunate to live in our country and to be in a position to make an endowment. For us, this is a sense of comfort that we have contributed to our own generation and that we will have an impact on the continuity of Jewish life for future generations.
