Create a Jewish Legacy

The Chai Society is our JCC’s Create a Jewish Legacy program.  A legacy commitment allows a donor to make a meaningful statement about their values today and guarantee a strong JCC tomorrow. 

The word, “chai” means life in Hebrew.  Individuals whose lives have been meaningfully enriched by a connection to the JCC, have made a commitment to include the JCC of Central NJ in their will or estate plan and have joined our Chai Society. 

Join us.
By making a legacy commitment you can assure that one generation is sustaining the next, L’Dor V’Dor; and you can safeguard the sustainability of our JCC.

Take a look at this video that highlights the impact of legacy gifts. 

There’s an undeniable emotional connection that develops when you are involved at our JCC.  Whether you’ve spent five years in our Early Childhood program or 35 years raising your family here, there’s something about how we connect families to one another and how we build community.  Sometimes it’s not easy to articulate those intangible things that make us feel so connected - and that’s why we simply say:  there’s something about this place.  These words are more than just a slogan at our JCC; these five words have become a call to action.

For more information about how you can become a part of our Chai Society, please contact Jennifer Mamlet, Executive Director, at jmamlet@jccnj.org or 908-889-8800 x202.

The Create a Jewish Legacy program is made possible due to the support of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest NJ.
