"I did not find the world desolate when I entered it. And as my parents planted for me before I was born, so do I plant for those who will come after me." Talmud Ta’anit 23a
Be a part of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation’s future with a Legacy gift that will last forever!
As the oldest Jewish Congregation in Maryland, BHC has enjoyed a prominent and influential history for one hundred and eighty-three years, in part because members before us left legacies that enabled us to provide for the spiritual, educational and communal needs of our Congregants.

Aging, retirement and now the pandemic are all compelling reasons for me to take a good long look at how I spend my time, energy and resources — in other words, what is truly important. My guiding passion is doing what I can to contribute to the well-being of my community, beyond my personal community of family and friends: my beloved quirky, challenged city of Baltimore; our struggling nation, and the larger worldwide human community. At Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, clergy and congregants not only talk about, but practice, the concept of Tikkun Olam, continually trying to heal our communities through volunteer action, study, partnerships, protests, casseroles, and more.
With my legacy, I can continue to support BHC, confident that BHC will carry on its dedication to healing the world with enthusiasm and creativity, while also inspiring more congregants to join in. I plan to stay active for as long as I can, but there is comfort in knowing my purpose will outlive me through the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation.
