Silberglied Family Philanthropy Fund

It is an honor and privilege to Create a Jewish Legacy in Delaware.  We arrived here in 1995 as a newlywed couple from New York and New Jersey, fresh out of law and graduate school and not knowing anyone in Delaware.  All of these years later, many of our closest friends are the ones we met at the Siegel JCC.  That sense of community, together with values passed on to us by our parents, makes us feel strongly about supporting the JCC, where Michelle served as President.  Our love for Israel, for the amazing work of Federation’s beneficiary agencies here in Delaware, and for Federation’s role in being a community convener for the many Jewish activities and organizations in Delaware led us also to be strong proponents of Federation, where Russ serves as a Vice President and member of the Board.  We are proud that our three sons also have already become leaders as well.  That itself is a legacy in the truest sense.  But it is equally important to make sure that the Delaware Jewish community will always have the same resources to welcome new and existing families alike, just like it did when we first arrived to town.  We are happy to do our part through the Create a Jewish Legacy program.
