As long as we live, we must not only give, but more importantly, we must teach to our children the importance of giving. The idea of tzedakah (giving) is spread throughout the Torah, expressed as a divine commandment. By specifying a gift to Congregation Ner Tamid in your will, you are showing the importance of tzedakah. “The succeeding link in the unbroken chain is the next generation, who must understand how essential it is to both give and to teach our children the vital need to give. Charitable giving is our legacy, the gift which makes our community a light among nations, the gift which will ensure not just our own survival, but a better world for the next link in the chain to thrive.”
