In honor of the Jewish Women's Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago's 20th anniversary, we are pleased to announce the creation of the Five Sisters Legacy Society, a meaningful opportunity to add your voice to the community of Jewish women who will make JWF a defining part of their charitable legacy.
JWF's Five Sisters Legacy Society is named after Zelophehad's daughters, a group of strong, wise women who used their collective voice to stand up for their rights and secure their future (Numbers 27: 1-11). The story of the Five Sisters illustrates one of the earliest challenges faced by Jewish women, the inability to inherit land. By successfully making their case, the Five Sisters stood up against injustice and affirmed the rights of all Jewish women for future generations.
Similarly, the Jewish Women's Foundation of Metropolitan Chicago is working to build a future where all Jewish women and girls are equally valued partners in every aspect of the Jewish community and around the world.
JWF's 20th anniversary presents a unique opportunity to dramatically increase our impact by growing our endowment with Legacy Gifts.
JWF is an enduring part of your Jewish legacy. As you plan for the future, think about what that legacy means to you and please consider JWF in your will or estate plan. To learn more about how to create your Jewish legacy, please contact us.
