1317 “It is not for you to complete the task, but neither are you free to desist from it.”  It is this quote from Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers) that has guided Ed’s and my living and giving.  We have been blessed with three wonderful children, their spouses, and seven grandchildren, all of whom we hope will continue the task of tikkun olam and live meaningful lives that are informed by Jewish teachings and values. 

Our gift to ensure a vibrant Jewish future in Tidewater reflects our love for this Jewish community and our love for Judaism.  And, of course, our love for our children and grandchildren. 

Just as our parents did for us, so we do for our children and grandchildren.
