WEST HARTFORD – The Greater Hartford Jewish community is one of 16 pilot communities nationwide selected to participate in the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) Multigenerational Family Philanthropy Training Program.
The program gives the Jewish Community Foundation and the Jewish Federation of Greater Hartford, both of West Hartford, the opportunity to launch an initiative to help families meet their philanthropic goals by establishing a legacy of giving that gives voice to their Jewish values.
The initiative consists of a three-part series through which families will explore the underpinnings of their personal and familial values in interactive and experiential workshops. “The program will offer families the opportunity to experience the joy of discovering their most important values and offer them a way to share the thrill of successfully helping others,” says Beth Appelman, the Federation’s vice president of development .
Deborah Rothstein, the Foundation’s vice president of philanthropy agrees. “Working with multiple generations strengthens family bonds while recognizing and acknowledging the creativity and passions of each member.”
