Legacy giving is the ultimate expression of your values and your belief in the future of The Emanuel Synagogue and the local Jewish community. Your legacy gift in your will, trust, retirement account or life insurance policy to The Emanuel Synagogue will strengthen our mission and serve the Greater Hartford community in perpetuity.

When you commit to a legacy gift to The Emanuel Synagogue you will become part of Greater Hartford’s LIFE & LEGACY program, in partnership with the Jewish Community Foundation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, which promotes after-lifetime giving to benefit The Emanuel Synagogue and 13 other local Jewish organizations. The program already has 115 Legacy donors and 166 after-lifetime commitments and is growing every week!

To make your commitment today and help ensure our vibrant future forever, please contact The Emanuel Synagogue Legacy Team leader Mel Simon at 860 493 2208 or Elana MacGilpin at the Jewish Community Foundation.
