Create Your Jewish Legacy

Create Your Jewish Legacy (CYJL) is our community-wide initiative, begun in September 2014, to increase the endowments of agencies and congregations throughout the Cincinnati Jewish community. We raise awareness about the importance of bequests and other planned gifts and educate community members about the ease with which they can create a legacy gift plan. 

As part of this initiative, the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati sponsors CYJL seminars with outside speakers and specialists, as well as helps each participating organization build a business plan and implement an endowment campaign. We launched a first cohort of 12 teams in September 2014, and a second cohort of 11 teams in spring 2017. If you would like to contact the leader of a specific team, click here.
