The “J”eneration Society: Crafting a Timeless Legacy for Our Cherished JCC

Discover the Impact of Planned Giving and Cement Your Place in the Future of Our Jewish Community 

We extend a heartfelt invitation for you to join The “J”eneration Society, a special group honoring those who have designated the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades as a beneficiary in their estate plans. 

Like you, the members of The “J”eneration Society care deeply about ensuring a thriving JCC will be here for their children and grandchildren.  Your commitment supports programs, services and everything we offer, today and for years to come. Through planned giving, you weave a thread through the tapestry of our Jewish heritage, visible from jeneration to jeneration. 

Why Make a Planned Gift? 

Making a planned gift goes beyond the present; it’s about leaving a lasting imprint for future generations. It is a long-term commitment to a cause that resonates with you and can also be a tax-smart investment.  

The simplicity and flexibility of planned giving make it easily accessible, allowing you to contribute at your own pace, with the option to adjust your commitment if circumstances change. The long-term impact of your planned gift acts as continuous support, reinforcing the vitality and resilience of the Jewish community for generations to come. 

When you make a planned gift, you not only invest in your values but also make a lasting difference in Jewish lives, year after year. It’s a straightforward process and easily revocable at any time. Your planned gift to the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades embodies your values and priorities—a powerful continuation of the impact you hold dear.
