Berakha (Blessing) & Intergenerational Philanthropy

Thursday, January 19, 2017, 6:30pm – 8:00pm EST
Address provided upon RSVP


Areyvut - Partnership

How can Jewish teachings about, and practices for, blessing inform healthy attitudes toward money and toward intergenerational philanthropy?

Join other funders for cocktails and conversation with board and staff from Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah to explore how understanding and using blessings can enrich philanthropic practice:

  • When we bless our children, what are we doing?
  • What does it mean to not only receive and give blessing, but to "be" a blessing (Genesis 12:2)?
  • What does it mean to give, or bestow, blessings from generation to generation?
  • How can thinking (and giving) with an attitude of blessing transform how we think about money and philanthropy?
