When I was young, we lost one-third of the world’s Jewish population to the Holocaust. Those of us in our Jewish community knew we had an obligation to ensure its long-term survival.

I am proud to have joined the L’Dor V’Dor Society at CCJDS through a planned bequest because I see the school as a bulwark against assimilation and apathy. Too many youth are dropping away, with loose ties to their Judaism. CCJDS helps students to realize their future as leaders of the Jewish community. I have seen firsthand how they combine a strong Judaic focus with the highest quality of academics.

Through my support of CCJDS, I see that future generations will grow up more closely bonded with their Jewish community. This is the legacy I choose to leave.

Phyllis and Jay KoppelmanWe take great pride in our Jewish heritage. It has given great meaning to our lives. And its contribution to the progress of civilization has been incalculable.

We want to do what we can to insure that the next generation of Jews will not just survive but thrive; that they will find happiness and fulfillment in their own lives, pass along our heritage to future generations and continue our people’s contribution to the progress of civilization.

We support Jewish education because it makes all these things possible by instilling Jewish values in the hearts of our young while developing the leadership that will move the next generation of our people into a vibrant future.
