WORCESTER – On March 11 at the Worcester Art Museum, the Jewish community celebrated the success of its LIFE & LEGACY program in Central Mass., which exceeded its goal by securing 242 after-lifetime commitments with an estimated value of $6,300,000 in future financial gifts to the community. The program is a collaboration between Jewish Federation of Central Mass. (JFCM) and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation to preserve Jewish life for future generations. JFCM and its 10 partner organizations reached goals of at least 18 legacy commitments and received a $5,000 challenge grant from JFCM and HGF. Those organizations are: Beth Tikvah Synagogue, Clark University Hillel, Congregation Beth Israel, Congregation B’nai Shalom, Congregation Shaarai Torah West, Jewish Family & Children’s Service, Jewish Healthcare Center, Temple Emanuel Sinai, Temple Israel in Athol, and Worcester JCC.
