Celebrate two ways of giving at Shabbat services. Beth David will host its annual Legacy Giving Shabbat in conjunction with the Addison-Penzak Jewish Community Center and the Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley as well as the National Donor Shabbat created by the Donate Life organization.

National Donor Shabbat
Does Judaism support organ, eye and tissue donation? Yes! Judaism supports this donation as a final act of compassion and generosity. Rabbi Alpert will discuss the halakhic and personal reasons why she supports this cause. Legacy Giving of organs, eyes and tissue donations, are done without an expectation of receiving anything in return. Learn more

Silicon Valley Legacy Giving Project – Legacy Giving Shabbat
People in the past have provided us our heritage, our buildings and objects and endowments, which we enjoy today. We can make sure there is funding for organizations that we want to thrive even after we are gone.

We will honor people from Congregation Beth David, the Addison-Penzak Jewish Community Center, and the Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley, who are committed to Legacy Giving.  All three organizations are part of the Silicon Valley Legacy Giving Project, along with Congregation Sinai, Shir Hadash, Temple Emanu-El, Hillel of Silicon Valley, Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley, and Yavneh Day School.
