Tavia & Freda Gordon

We feel we must assume some responsibility to perpetuate our Jewish heritage and to instill these values in our children and our grandchildren through temple, religious activities and education. Our Family Supporting Foundation at TJF helps us facilitate our philanthropy and sets an example for the next generation – l’dor va dor. We have recently started a more disciplined approach to our philanthropy by planning multi-year commitments to the agencies that are nearest to our hearts.

Our goal is to develop a more long-term view of how to sustain our community’s Jewish agencies so that our gift will be something that the agencies can count on and work into their budgets each year. Our foundation enables us as a family to focus on community growth and to evaluate where we can do the most good.
