In honor of my bat mitzvah I set up a philanthropic fund at the Tidewater Jewish Foundation. I wanted to do something meaningful and long lasting in lieu of receiving gifts. For me, the best gift was being able to help others by having a fund that will be here forever and enhance the community for years to come. The values of tzedakah have been passed down from my grandparents to my parents and now to me. I hope that my fund will impact many future generations.
