Building Family Philanthropy

“We met with Kathy Assayag and Bobby Kleinman, and for us, this was the turning point. They took the time to understand our situation and to provide us with sound fiscal advice. They considered our philanthropic objectives, while recommending strategies that allowed us to maximize our contributions.”



Achieving Excellence Together

“We set up a scholarship in tribute to our son Mitchell of blessed memory, along with his fiancée Mary who died in a mountaineering accident in Nepal more than 20 years ago. Mitchell valued both community service and education, and this is a fitting tribute to his memory.”



Seizing every Opportunity

“When I was a very young girl, I would lie down in the back seat of the car when I was traveling with my family. Every once in a while I would pop up to ask, “Am I missing anything?” The Foundation is an organization that attempts not to miss anything, anything that could protect and benefit our community, especially Jewish life here and abroad. ”
