                           Life & Legacy Program                           






Life and Legacy ™ is a collaborative effort to ensure the future of our Jewish Community.  This is achieved through a unique partnership among The Foundation of the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester, The Harold Grinspoon Foundation and many local Jewish organization and synagogues, including Temple Sinai.

Why Participate?

In one way or another your life is rooted in Jewish experiences and values connecting you to Temple Sinai and others in our Jewish community.  By leaving a legacy, you can assure that the Jewish traditions and institutions that mean so much to you today will exist for future generations.  Chances are you already support Temple Sinai and other Jewish charitable organizations in Rochester.  But have you included Temple Sinai and these other organizations in your will or estate plan? 

How Do I Begin:

Anybody Can Do It!

Bequest in a will
