Making a Lasting Impact
Jewish camping is the strongest stimulus to building Jewish identity in today’s youth.
A planned gift is any major gift, made in lifetime or at death as part of a donor’s overall financial and/or estate planning. Such a gift, with the use of estate and tax planning techniques, provides for charity in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate. There are a number of types of planned gifts.
The Torah established a series of tzedakah offerings, each with its own special calculations, interpretations, and objectives. In addition, there were other Jewish communal obligations: on a percentage basis, at least 22% of the harvest was allocated for charity or tzedakah. We can therefore infer that this Jewish community practice (the Torah) was a precursor to planned or legacy giving.
