What will my legacy be?
What will I leave when I leave this life?
Will I leave this world a little better, or a little worse, for having briefly had me in it?
Will I leave my family able to keep doing well – and keep doing good – without me?
Will I have strengthened or weakened my personal link in that three thousand year-old chain we call Judaism?
These are not easy times. Over the last ten years, rates of Jewish involvement have continued to decline.
Yet, amazingly, over the same period Masorti Judaism’s membership has doubled in size.
If you’re one of our members, you’ll know why: we have a unique ability to welcome people, bring them in, and help them build a meaningful, committed and lifelong connection with Judaism.
But if we want to guarantee a Masorti Jewish home for our children and grandchildren, we have to tackle several practical concerns.
We need to train talented rabbis and communal leaders.
We need to provide thought-provoking, stimulating Jewish education.
We need to inspire our young people through the amazing work of Noam and Marom.
And, no less importantly, we need to ensure our communities have buildings in which to meet, learn and pray.
So when you ask yourself, as we all do, ‘What will my legacy be?’ please consider leaving Masorti Judaism and your Masorti Synagogue a gift in your will.
