Leave a Jewish Legacy

"As my parents planted for me, so do I plant for future generations."
- Talmud Ta'anit 23a

Your Mandell JCC is proud to be in close partnership with the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Hartford* for its planned giving program and in particular the Leave a Jewish Legacy initiative.

Leave a Jewish Legacy is a community-wide program sponsored by the Jewish Community Foundation to encourage donors to make a bequest to benefit their favorite Jewish charitable organizations.  We at the Mandell JCC are embracing this important initiative and hope that you will be part of perpetuating and securing the future of our JCC.  Your legacy gift of any size can be designed to match your personal circumstances. 

Tomorrow begins today with your legacy gift.

  • A bequest in your will or trust
  • An outright endowment gift
  • A life insurance policy
  • An IRA or pension plan
  • A charitable remainder trust
  • A charitable gift annuity

A legacy gift is a simple and meaningful way to help guarantee a strong Jewish community for generations to come.  Please visit the Jewish Community Foundation’s website at to learn how you can make a difference for the Mandell JCC through an endowed or legacy gift.  You may also contact David Jacobs, Executive Director of the Mandell JCC, at 860-231-6313 or
