“My husband Chuck and I were on the Endowment Book of Life Committee for years, and Chuck is a former Chair. We care deeply about the Jewish Foundation and are proud to grow our endowment fund at the JFM. The income earned by the fund is presented every year as a scholarship to a student entering the second year of law school. Chuck was a long-time lawyer and judge and this scholarship is a way to give back to his profession and our community at the same time.”
