AJ secures 18 LIFE & LEGACY commitments

Adath Jeshurun is the first participating LIFE &LEGACY organization here to secure 18 legacy commitments – the threshold number to qualify for a $5,000 incentive gift from the Jewish Community of Louisville.
To participate, each Jewish agency or congregation must commit to secure 18 legacy commitments for the first two years of the program. Once the milestone is reached, the entity qualifies for the incentive and fulfills its initial commitment.
Bill Esakov and Frankye Gordon, led a team of AJ volunteers who secured the commitments in less than five months. Chuck O’Koon, Peter Pearlman, Sidney Hymson and Rabbi Robert Slosberg round out the team.
LIFE & LEGACY is a national program sponsored by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, in conjunction with local agencies, to encourage legacy philanthropic giving.
To date, more than 50 people have committed to making a legacy gift.
In addition to AJ, the other participating entities are Temple Shalom, The Temple, Keneseth Israel, The Jewish Federation of Louisville, The J, Jewish Family & Career Services, Jewish Learning Center-Chabad and Louisville Beit Sefer Yachad.
