    I am living proof that the work we do through the Federation helps build a strong Jewish future. If it weren't for HIAS, and the Federation, my life could have turned out very differently. It gives me great pleasure to be able to give back through my time and resources, and leave a lasting legacy.

    My involvement with the Greater Miami Jewish Federation has provided me with so many unique experiences and I am honored to be a past Chair of the Board...These experiences were even more meaningful when sharing them with my children.

    Growing up in Miami during the Jim Crow Era, I remember when it was so not easy being Jewish. The Federation was an oasis in a desert, providing assistance to anyone in the Jewish community who was in need.

    Over the ensuing 47 years I have been privileged to make a gift of my own of at least $5,000. I have also learned more about the Jewish people in general and this Jewish community in particular than I can describe on this page. That may be the most rewarding gift of all.

    David and I have been Pacesetters for 18 years; through a gift in our will, we perpetuated that gift and became Forever Pacesetters. We are blessed and proud of the work that the Federation does every day to keep our community and Israel strong.

    I want my legacy to be one where I gave from the heart, a heart that cared to try to make the Jewish community a little bit stronger, healthier, safer and to create an environment where our children are proud of their heritage, and know the importance of passing it on to future generations. I want to be remembered as a person who couldn't say no to the less fortunate and couldn't say no to creating a Jewish legacy my family could be proud of.

    As we wander the world, there are places we find outside of our house that we call home. Lehrman Community Day School is one of those places for our family. The Lehrman family invited us into their home (literally for Shabbat) then into their legacy, the school, which in turn became Calder's legacy.

    Muhammed Ali once said, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” It is how I have tried to live my life... An ardent Zionist, I was involved with ORT Israel. I am a proud Life Member of Hadassah and have been a long-time donor of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation.

    As I reflect on the importance of l'dor v'dor, from generation to generation, my legacy gifts to Temple Beth Am, Greater Miami Jewish Federation and University of Florida Hillel allow me to fulfill my Jewish responsibility and pay tribute to those who have mentored me in this ongoing process.

    Roz and Charles emphasized the importance and need to support Jewish causes and the State of Israel based upon their experiences as children. They wanted their children's life to be different. "We want all Jewish children to have the opportunity to explore their religion in a warm, accepting atmosphere," both said. "Federation fills that need for today's young people."
