Assuring Ohav’s Future – Our LIFE & LEGACY™ Society

We are pleased that since its launch on March 1, 2018, Ohav Shalom’s LIFE & LEGACY™ Society continues to make significant strides. We are grateful to everyone who is supporting Ohav’s future by signing a Letter of Intent. Their commitment, and yours, support and strengthens our community and ensures Ohav’s future.

Every member of Ohav can get involved in our LIFE & LEGACY™ program, which is a 4-year partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation that assists communities across North America to promote after-lifetime giving to Jewish organizations of the donor’s choice. Congregation Ohav Shalom is one of 11 organizations chosen to be a partner with our Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York, which will administer the program in our community. We are grateful to the Federation for its support. The goal of our LIFE & LEGACY™ Society is to encourage members of Congregation Ohav Shalom to secure its future by including Ohav in their after-life legacies.

Please consider joining Ohav’s LIFE & LEGACY™ Society. The program is structured so that everyone can participate! Our Committee members have already started reaching out to all congregants to offer membership in the LIFE & LEGACY™ Society. Signing a Letter of Intent and indicating Ohav Shalom as your beneficiary will enroll you, and then you will then have a year to formalize your commitment. Your enrollment will make you a role model for other members of our Ohav community. If you wish to remain anonymous, you may indicate that on your Letter of Intent.

Ask yourself how Ohav has impacted your life and the lives of your family members and friends. Then, please join us as one who loves Ohav and wants to safeguard its future. May your commitment to Ohav through our LIFE & LEGACY™ Society always bring you happiness and pride in assuring Ohav Shalom’s survival for future generations.

Ohav is our home. We hope we can count on your valued commitment to keeping our home strong for future generations. Our success is up to you.
