Luncheon Honors Jewish Home Legacy Circle Members
Nearly 100 members of the Legacy Circle of the Los Angeles Jewish Home gathered on May 21 at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills for the annual Legacy Circle luncheon.
The Legacy Circle is comprised of individuals who have made provisions in their estate plans for the Home. Naming the Jewish Home in their estate plans helps ensure its future for generations to come.
Each year significant funds come to the Jewish Home from legacy gifts. Although many of these donors choose to be anonymous, members of the Legacy Circle set a standard that others emulate, helping to secure the future of our Home. Regardless of size, or how they are legally and technically structured, it is these gifts which communicate these donors' personal legacy: their values, priorities, and inspirations. Hosting the annual luncheon is the Home's way to thank generous individuals.
The Home's CEO-President Molly Forrest provided guests with an informative update on the state of healthcare in America. The keynote address was presented by the Jewish Home's Jack H. Skirball Director of Spiritual Life, Rabbi Karen Bender, who noted she is learning from those in attendance, since they have all followed many mitzvot through their plans and remarkable generosity.
