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.
