My usual inclination is to do what I think is important and right without fanfare. However, I also like the notion that my actions might be an example for others. So, here I am in the Book of Life.
In choosing to make a bequest to the Endowment Fund of Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver I hope to help provide the fuel to keep the wheels in motion. I cannot foresee the future of the Jewish community, but I know that I want it to thrive. It has been a meaningful part of my life here in Vancouver for over thirty-one years, and I expect that it will continue to be meaningful for at least thirty-one more. While I am here I will have my say; afterward, the leaders of tomorrow will have the benefit of my continued support toward what is deemed needed at the time.
