Ben-Avivs Give Through Legacy Match Life Insurance Program

“We feel blessed and want to make sure we are leaving a vibrant Jewish community for our children, and life insurance was such an easy and reasonable way to do it,” said Michelle Ben-Aviv, who, along with her husband, Matan, was inspired to give to Federation through a unique Foundation program. After years of involvement in Federation and our partner agencies, the Ben-Avivs decided to perpetuate their Pacesetter-level Annual Campaign donation through the Legacy Match Life Insurance Program of Federation’s Foundation. Federation provides a 50 percent match, reducing donors' out-of-pocket costs with tax-deductible premium payments for only five years, enabling donors to support Jewish needs in Miami, in Israel and around the world far beyond their lifetimes. “Federation is the backbone of our entire Jewish community,” said Michelle. “Without a strong Federation in place, none of this would be possible.” To learn how you can make a donation through life insurance, click here.
