It is our family and our Jewish identity that define us. Both require attention, love and support to thrive.
As parents to four children, we believe it is not only an opportunity, but an affirmative duty to instill within our children the values, culture and heritage of being Jewish. Among the many values that we hold dear are the concepts that Jews have a special obligation to other Jews and that we must help repair the world (Tikkun Olam). Our gift through the Tidewater Jewish Foundation provides the perfect vehicle for us to put these values into action. We hope that our gift will not only benefit members of our community but also inspire our children, the next generation, to live as active Jews and members of our Jewish community.
