I came to Israel for the first time in 1968 when I was 13. There was something here that spoke to me very deeply. I came back more than 30 times, taking all sorts of groups here. I moved here as a single woman; left my career as a lawyer; sold my house. I started my own company here. I took it a day at a time.
I knew NIF was an organization where my Jewish values and the importance Israel plays in my life, as well as my philanthropic goals, could all come together.
The most important issue for me is that Israel remains both Jewish and democratic. Becoming a legacy donor was a natural progression—you want the work that reflects your values and priorities to continue for as long as possible, even after you are not here any longer.
