The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s Federation Endowments Corporation hosted 60 community members at its annual Legacy Society and Remembrance Event.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia’s Federation Endowments Corporation hosted 60 community members at its annual Legacy Society and Remembrance Event on Sept. 28 at the Jewish Community Services Building in Philadelphia. The evening honored all Legacy Society members and welcomed new members into the society. The new members’ gifts totaled over $7 million in gifts for the Jewish Federation, which were made through the donors’ estate plans.
The event also paid tribute to those who passed away during 5776 and whose acts of tzedakah will live on forever. Reflections about some of these generous men and women of blessed memory were shared by their family and friends. The evening also was an opportunity for attendees to mourn together the passing of Shimon Peres, z”l, earlier that day.
Connie and Donald Berg and Adam Klazmer served as the event’s chairs. The Kohelet Keys, Kohelet Yeshiva High School’s a cappella group, provided the evening’s entertainment.
