Legacies

Create a Jewish Legacy

Create a Jewish Legacy was a community-wide initiative comprised of strategic alliances with Delaware's Jewish organizations. Agencies, synagogues, and JFD's Jewish Fund for the Future, supported by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation's Life & Legacy grant, worked together to secure gifts and bequests, helping to ensure a sustainable future in the Delaware Jewish Community. Partnering organizations received the tools and resources necessary for developing these Jewish Legacies. 

Leaving a Jewish legacy allows individuals and families to support the Jewish causes they care so deeply about; empowering our community to continue the sacred work of tikkun olam while ensuring the traditions and values of our institutions will continue in perpetuity.

Now that this initiative in complete, we want to share with you a collection of stories and photos from the members of our community who Created a Jewish Legacy. 

We invite you view our Delaware Jewish Community's Book of Life
