Tom and Judy Fisher

We feel an obligation to honor and preserve the legacy of Jewish values, including giving tzedakah and loving your neighbor as yourself, left to us by our parents, of blessed memory. By contributing to the Jewish community where we live, we want to preserve this legacy by teaching philanthropy to our children, so they in turn can teach it to their children.

To honor the memory of our parents, to further our support for the continuation and strengthening of Jewish life in this land, in Israel and throughout the world, and especially to set an example for our future generations, we created our fund at the Jewish Community Foundation and will continue to build our family’s legacy.

Judy’s father often quoted Hillel in Pirkei Avot, “If I am not for myself, who will be? If I am only for myself, what am I? If not now, when?” Creating our fund at the Jewish Community Foundation answers all of these questions by allowing us to create an ongoing legacy for our family.
