By leaving a legacy in your Will to Shaare Zedek Canada, you are ensuring that the hospital serves Jerusalem, both now and in the future.

You don’t need to leave a large amount. Every dollar the hospital receives makes a difference. There is no greater act of ‘tzedakah’ than the selflessness of giving. Your legacy will ensure that we can:

  • Upgrade equipment
  • Redevelop essential life-saving areas of the hospital
  • Provide nursing scholarships and specialized training
  • Provide ground-breaking research that can save lives now and in the future

You can be sure that whatever you leave, it WILL make more of a difference than you could ever realize.
