Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Mercer – “Celebrating 50 Years of Giving: Creating a Jewish Legacy”

The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Mercer has been hard at work preparing for their fall event, “Celebrating 50 Years of Giving:  Creating a Jewish Legacy”, to be held on October 30, 2014, at Adath Israel Congregation in Lawrenceville, NJ.
 
In addition to celebrating 50 years of Jewish giving, the event will also celebrate the successful inaugural year of LIFE & LEGACY.  During the past year, the Foundation launched LIFE & LEGACY, a collaborative legacy giving program, representing a shared commitment by area synagogues, agencies and day schools to work together to secure a more vibrant Jewish future as it encourages legacies and endowment gifts to help to strengthen the local Jewish community.  LIFE & LEGACY is sponsored and presented by The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Mercer and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.  Through the LIFE & LEGACY program, over 100 donors have made Legacy commitments during this past year to area Jewish organizations and synagogues.
  
Dr. Jeffrey R. Solomon will be the featured guest speaker at the October event. Dr. Solomon is the President of the Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies, a family of foundations operating in Canada, Israel, and the United States. He is co-author, with Charles Bronfman, of The Art of Giving: Where the Soul Meets a Business Plan, which has been awarded the Axiom Gold Medal in Philanthropy. The event will also feature speakers from the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Mercer and The Grinspoon Foundation.

 

The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Mercer hopes that the entire community comes out to support the event.  Julie Davidson Meyers, Executive Director states, “It’s a thrilling time and a privilege to honor those who have tirelessly supported our Jewish Community.   We remain humbled and profoundly inspired by LIFE & LEGACY participants who have made meaningful legacy commitments.  We welcome one and all to join us at this powerful celebration.”
  
The event will take place on October 30, 2014. The reception will be held at Adath Israel Congregation, 1958 Lawrenceville Road, in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. For more information or to register for the event, please visit FoundationJewish.org/RSVP  or call the Foundation at (609) 219-0555.
