Create a Jewish Legacy

What Is Create a Jewish Legacy?

Create a Jewish Legacy represents a shared commitment by area synagogues, agencies and day schools to work together to secure a more vibrant Jewish future. Create a Jewish Legacy is sponsored and presented by The Foundation of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation.

With Create a Jewish Legacy, you have the ability to create one legacy gift which can benefit one or more organizations that are important to you. You can make a commitment, either through a current or future gift to a Jewish organization's endowment fund or by declaring your intent to remember Jewish causes in your will or estate plans.

Your legacy gift of any size can be customized and structured to fit your dreams, lifestyle, family and financial needs. You can provide support for a particular institution (e.g., synagogue, day school, Jewish agency or JCC) or area of interest (e.g., caring for the elderly, educating our community's children, advancing Jewish life, Jewish summer camp experiences, college campus programs or support for Israel and overseas programs).

Why Create a Jewish Legacy?

Creating your own Jewish legacy empowers you to further the work of your heart and to enjoy the peace of mind that it brings.

You can:

  • PERPETUATE the Jewish traditions and values you cherish
  • PRESERVE the programs and institutions that support Jewish life in Miami and around the world
  • PLAN for your family's philanthropic interests and enjoy tax advantages

Creating your Jewish legacy ensures that you'll be remembered and your work and Jewish values will continue beyond your lifetime. By creating your legacy today, you can secure vital Jewish community programs that you wish to sustain while ensuring a safety net is in place to protect and strengthen our Jewish community for generations. It's a meaningful, personal way to honor loved ones, and teach your children and grandchildren the value of philanthropy. You will ensure a strong, vibrant and engaging community that will perpetuate your values into the future.
