During this sacred season, let us reflect on the impact we want to make on the world and how we can align our philanthropic goals with our values.
As the High Holidays approach, we find ourselves standing at the threshold of a new year, an opportunity for introspection, reflection, and renewal. These sacred days present a unique opportunity to embrace mindfulness, fostering a deeper connection with ourselves, our community, and our Jewish heritage.
Mindfulness is about being present and fully aware of our thoughts, feelings, and actions. It allows us to cultivate gratitude, compassion, and an understanding of our purpose. As we engage in prayer, self-examination, and acts of kindness during this season, let us also focus on the legacy that those before us have left behind – gifts that can help shape the Jewish community we are today and our commitment to secure its future in Tidewater.
Legacy gifting is a powerful way to ensure that our values and passions endure beyond our lifetime. By making a planned gift to the Tidewater Jewish Foundation, we can support the causes, organizations, and initiatives that matter most to us. Through legacy gifting, we become partners in building a vibrant and resilient Jewish community for generations.
During this sacred season, let us reflect on the impact we want to make on the world and how we can align our philanthropic goals with our values. By engaging in mindful acts of tzedakah (charitable giving), we sow the seeds for a more compassionate and just society today and tomorrow.
