Jewish Legacy Challenge

Recognizing the importance of securing a strong and vibrant Jewish future, the Chabad Jewish Center of Wyoming has launched the Jewish Legacy Challenge.

Our generous legacy matcher, Aaron and Susan Weinberg and an anonymous angel, have committed to making a special donation on condition that the Chabad Jewish Center of Wyoming secures ten future Jewish legacy commitments from today until September of 2019.

Your generosity has been essential in establishing the Chabad Jewish Center of Wyoming as a beacon of Jewish life in Wyoming. Your bequest will strengthen Chabad's financial foundation and guarantee Jewish vibrancy for the next generation. Your legacy gift will be a catalyst for growth. It will enable the expansion of our programs for local and visiting families, children and seniors. Your generous gift will create a powerful impact for Jewish life in Wyoming.

How the Jewish Legacy Challenge works:

  • Aaron and Susan Weinberg and an anonymous angel will provide a special ten thousand dollar gift to our annual fund, on condition that the Chabad Jewish Center of Wyoming receives ten signed legacy commitments in the next 12 months.
  • Designate either a percentage or a fixed amount of your estate to Chabad.
  • Gifts of a retirement account or life insurance policy will be included as a commitment to the Legacy Challenge. 
  • Complete the letter of intent form that you are leaving a gift to Chabad, and ensure a strong and vibrant Jewish future.

One day, a fellow named Choni was walking on the road and saw an old man planting a carob tree. Choni asked the man, “How long will it take for this tree to bear fruit?” The man replied, “Seventy years.” Choni then asked, “And do you think you will live another seventy years and eat the fruit of this tree?”

The man answered, “When I was born into this world, I found many carob trees planted by my parents and grandparents. Just as they planted trees for me, I am planting trees for my children and grandchildren so they will be able to eat the fruit of these trees.” - The Talmud

Like our ancestors before us, now is our opportunity to lovingly plant the seeds to ensure future generations of Jewish life.
