This may be the single most important decision you ever make.
Generations of Jewish families will thank you.
“We should see each soul standing with all the generations destined to descend from it until the coming of Mashiach. When you do a kindness for that one soul, you do a kindness for all those souls descended from it until the end of all generations.”
- The Alter Rebbe
WHAT WILL YOUR LEGACY BE?
Have you thought about how you'll be remembered? Have you thought about what your legacy will be?
Did you know that you can create your legacy with a charitable bequest in your will that reflects your love for Judaism and your very deepest values? Did you know you can impact generations of Jewish families for good?
A bequest in your will is one of the simplest and most profound ways to do good in the world. With a bequest to Bais Chana, you'll be educating and inspiring Jewish women to marry Jewish, raise Jewish children and bring the light of Judaism and Torah to the world. And because you're educating and empowering Jewish women - and women make things happen! - that's a ripple effect over generations of children, grandchildren, friends and communities.
Empowered Jewish women. Happy, healthy Jewish families. A bright Jewish future.
You make that happen with your legacy gift to Bais Chana.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE RICH TO MAKE SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE RICH
Leave A Legacy - It's Easier Than You Think
A bequest is one of the easiest and most popular ways to leave a legacy, even if you're someone of modest means. Just add a few lines into your will and you'll be impacting generations of Jewish families.
Here's how a bequest works:
- A bequest does not cost you anything during your lifetime.
- With a Residuary Bequest, you designate a portion of your estate to Bais Chana Women International.
- With an Outright Bequest, you leave a specific dollar amount or a specific asset, like securities or real estate, to Bais Chana Women International.
- After your passing, your trustee will transfer the bequest money or real estate to Bais Chana Women International.
- Bequests are revocable and can be changed or modified during your lifetime.
- Bequests may relieve the tax burden on your family.
