Create A Legacy


LIFE & LEGACY, a signature program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, is a program to help ensure Jewish tomorrows. Temple Beth Emet was chosen, along with 13 other local Jewish organizations by the Jewish

Everyone, regardless of age, wealth or affiliation has the ability to leave a legacy and the Life & Legacy process is very easy. It all starts with a conversation.
