B’nai Tzedek

Starting a B’nai Tzedek Fund is easy.  You just take some of your gift money.  The Jewish Foundation of Louisville will match part of it with dollars from the Lewis D. Cole B’nai Tzedek Fund – and voila, you’ve done it.  The money in your B’nai Tzedek Fund is invested and then every year you get to decide which Jewish charities will get a portion of the allocatable dollars from your fund. Click here to learn more.
