Preserving Your Legacy - Sustaining Our Future

“Jewish values and continuity are vitally important to us. That’s why we’ve included HUC-JIR in our estate plan.”
Charles A. Kroloff, ’60, Rabbi Emeritus, Temple Emanu-El, Westfield, NJ, and Dr. Terry K. Kroloff with their children and grandchildren, all proud members of Reform synagogues


Generosity that extends beyond a lifetime

The Jewish leader – rabbi, cantor, educator, nonprofit management professional, or scholar – whom you admire and who strengthens Jewish communities in North America and beyond, was educated at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. 

Israeli rabbis and educators – graduates of programs at our Jerusalem campus – are advocates for religious pluralism and a progressive Judaism.

Our libraries, museums, and American Jewish Archives preserve and disseminate treasures of the Jewish people.

Generations to come will look to our graduates for inspiration and guidance. They must be ready to lead an ever-changing Jewish community.  Your legacy gift will ensure our continued contributions to the Jewish people in the decades to come.
