"I created my legacy gift to the David Posnack Jewish Community Center so that my deep commitment to Holocaust memory will continue as a central focus of our center. In this way I honor my immediate family and all survivors of the Holocaust. By coming together as a community, we continue to continue." - Susan Miller, Sculptor, Artist and Author
I moved to south Florida from Israel in 1980, and after working for FP&L I realized my life needed more purpose. In 1987 I drove by what we now know as the DPJCC, and knew I had found my calling! It is important to me and my family to connect with the Jewish community. My two sons, Ronald and Michael, grew up in the J. In fact, Michael was in the first preschool graduation class. It is at the J, together as a family, that we received an excellent Jewish education and established our Jewish roots. My two grand-daughters, Ava and Emily, finished preschool at the J and now come every day for after-school care, and absolutely love coming to summer camp. The David Posnack Jewish Community Center gives our family an excellent Jewish connection, and it is where I have been happily employed for over 30 years. I gave to the J because I know that the DPJCC is the center of Jewish life in Broward County, and it is important to continue to connect our Jewish community.—Avi Zuri, Director of Campus Operations
The Heart of the Program
Each participating organization selects a team of dedicated volunteers who work with professional staff to secure legacy gifts for their organization and the community. The Jewish Community Foundation of Broward supports the team members and works to coordinate this community-wide initiative to build a sustainable Broward Jewish community through endowments.
