Create a Jewish Legacy

Through the EITZ CHAIM LEGACY SOCIETY, over 50 of our friends and supporters have made commitments to the future YES by making a commitment to remember YES through their will, trust, retirement account or life insurance. These gifts are deposited in the Twerski  Family Legacy Endowment Fund of YES.

YES participated in the Jewish Community Foundation's "Create a Jewish Legacy" program from 2014-2017. Through this program, membership in the ETZ CHAIM LEGACY SOCIETY has grown exponentially. We now have 53 friends joining to perpetuate our sacred mission. We continue to encourage YES families and friends to remember our school in their estate plans.

We are grateful to the Milwaukee Jewish Federation and the Jewish Community Foundation for bringing the Create a Jewish Legacy Program to Milwaukee. We thank the Harold Grinspoon Foundation creating this wonderful program, and to all of the donors that made this program possible.

Members of our Legacy Society will continue to be honored and acknowledged publicly in various ways.  Please come visit YES to see the beautiful all-wood Eitz Chaim Legacy Society Honor Roll plaque in our beautiful skylit hallway.

Planned gifts can include bequests, life insurance, and a variety of other options.
