Many years ago, I was asked what I hoped to achieve through the foundation I had started with my late husband, Charles. I responded with a phrase that still describes our work: spreading the joy of Jewish living, giving and learning.
Our foundation has spent a great deal of time on the “living” and “learning” aspects of our vision. We have invested in creating and supporting opportunities to strengthen the identities and leadership capacities of young Jews to ensure they take ownership for perpetuating vibrant Jewish life.
