The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is anguished and outraged by the senseless violence in Las Vegas. As we begin the new year, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families and the entire Las Vegas community today.

Also, see our response to recent natural disasters and how you can help.

Family philanthropy can be a hands-on experience that brings multiple generations together around shared goals and the desire to have an impact on the community and the world. The Jewish Federation can help you unite your family around your philanthropy and transmit your values to the next generation.

It is sometimes difficult to start a conversation about philanthropy with children or grandchildren. The Jewish Federation can work with your family, conducting multi-generational family meetings to help you express your feelings about your giving and the causes you care about. These meetings can be meaningful conversations that explore a family’s legacy, values and priorities.

The Jewish Federation endowment staff has tools and expertise to help facilitate these conversations. Contact Rachel Gross to find out more.
