A community synagogue for progressive Conservative Judaism, welcoming to all.

Create a Jewish Legacy at JCCH

In 1960, a group of Westchester residents came together with a mission – to create a vibrant Jewish presence in Harrison.

Could they have known that more than a half-century later the Jewish Community Center of Harrison would not just still be here but would be thriving?

The vision of our founders and the stewardship of subsequent synagogue leadership over the decades have made the JCCH what is today.

But as great as a community might be, it needs nurturing, commitment, and long-term support.

Your legacy gift to JCCH is an expression of your commitment to our community. It is a way of showing appreciation and respect for the past and can play a significant role in shaping the future for years to come.

There are a variety of ways to create a legacy at JCCH:

  • You can name the synagogue as a beneficiary in your will
  • You can create a charitable gift annuity
  • You can name JCCH as a beneficiary of a retirement account, life insurance policy, or pension plan
  • You can create a charitable trust of other estate planning vehicle

Your plan will depend on your financial situation and the advice of your financial or estate planner. Whatever method you choose, know that it will help to provide financial resources to ensure JCCH remains a lasting presence.

Please consider creating your own Jewish legacy right here at the JCCH.

For more information, contact JCCH Executive Director Eric Nussbaum at 914-835-2850 x108 or at enussbaum@jcch.org to discuss making a legacy gift to JCCH. (All conversations are, of course, strictly confidential.)

Please be sure to consult your tax or estate planning professional to ensure that your legacy plans are properly drafted.

Thank you for your support of the JCCH.
