כי היכי דשתלי לי אבהתי שתלי נמי לבראי
Just as my ancestors planted for me, I too am planting for my descendants.

What is the LIFE & LEGACY™ Program?

We are a partner in the LIFE & LEGACY™ Program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, coordinated by United Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York. LIFE & LEGACY™ assures Jewish tomorrows with training and incentives to build endowments for Jewish organizations, ensuring a bright and sustainable future for our community.

What is a Legacy Gift?

Legacy Giving is after-life giving. You do not have to be wealthy, nor do you need to give today, to make a difference in CBAJ’s future. You can leave a Legacy Gift in many ways, such as:
• Gift of Life Insurance– by naming CBAJ as a beneficiary to receive a portion of your insurance
• Gift of retirement funds (IRA/401k/ pension) – by naming CBAJ as a beneficiary to receive a portion of your remaining balance
• Gift of cash or assets
• Charitable Gift Annuity
• Charitable Remainder Trust

Your LIFE & LEGACY™ Gift will be invested and will provide annual revenue to support our shul for many generations to come. Your generosity can sow the seeds that will ensure that future generations will benefit from CBAJ just as you have.  We would be honored to have you join our Legacy Family to ensure the vitality of Congregation Beth Abraham-Jacob for the next 200 years. 

Please join us by making a legacy commitment to CBAJ. You may contact any of the following committee members with questions, or to discuss your plans. You may reach us through the CBAJ office at 518-489-5819 or
Thank you,
Artie Brenner, Rabbi Roy Feldman, Drew Kugler, Seth Rosenblum, Laura Segal
