Passing of values is a tenet of Judaism

Tags: Giving, Federation, PR, Philanthropy, Women

The first time most of us create a will is when we have children. As we mature and our family structure changes, so too must the manner in which we view our estate plans. A will is more than a means to transfer property; it can be an expression of one’s personal ideals.
