The Jewish Leadership Council has confirmed that we will become a partner in supporting Jewish Legacy Awareness month.
Commenting on the new partnership, JLC Chief Executive Simon Johnson said;
"With so many charities in the Jewish community both UK and abroad now reliant on Gifts in wills to help them carry out their vital work, supporting JLG to help raise awareness seemed like a natural partnership for us. We are looking forward to helping JLG shine the light on the vital role Gifts in wills play whilst helping to make a difference to their 50 member charities."
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our readers a Shana Tova.
The last year has been a trying one for Britain. Our country has been the target of terrorism and our community has been the target of increasing antisemitism and hate crime. We were shocked by the tragedy of Grenfell Tower because of the terrible loss of life but also because it accentuated the growing gaps within our society. But as we gather round our Rosh Hashana dinner table, attend services in synagogue and reflect on the difficulties we have experienced, it is incumbent upon us not to forget the good we have in our lives. Indeed, there is much for which we can be thankful.
