We know firsthand the benefits of a strong and vibrant Jewish community as we met each other many years ago at the La Jolla JCC. Soon after starting a family, it became clear that our participation in the San Diego Jewish community could make a real and lasting impact not just on us, our children and our community, but on our people as a whole. We have served on synagogue, Federation, and Hillel boards, traveled on missions, volunteered at preschool and Hebrew school, have led a capital campaign, and have hopefully helped put in place foundations for future generations of Jews in the community. We are all fortunate to have so many wonderful and dedicated local, national and international organizations supporting Jews of all ages and backgrounds, and we consider it an honor to have the opportunity to leave a legacy that will impact the Jewish people for generations to come.
