At 36, I already know I want my legacy to involve Israel and JNF
|The author, Matt Franzblau, in Israel.|
I consider myself fortunate to be able to make this small yet significant gesture. After all, more than 70 years ago our brothers and sisters who perished in the Holocaust weren't able to do the same thing, nor did they have a state of Israel to leave anything for.
I would have never thought to do such a thing had it not been for a simple yet impactful presentation during a JNF board meeting. As young professionals, or Futures as we are called in the world of JNF, we often think about the future and what it will look like five to 10 years down the line, but rarely do we think farther than that, and most certainly not in regards to our own mortality.
