AEPi’s Mission is the Jewish Future
Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) is proud to partner with Jewish Future Pledge, a worldwide movement working to ensure that vibrant Jewish life continues for generations to come. It calls on all Jews to join in The Jewish Future Pledge and sign a declaration that half or more of the charitable giving specified in their will/estate plan will be gifted to organizations—like AEPi—that support the Jewish people and/or the State of Israel. Whether you’re leaving $100 dollars or $10 million to charity in your will, you can be a part of securing the Jewish future for generations to come.
Together, we can secure a vibrant Jewish future. By sparking critical intergenerational conversations about the Jewish values reinforced by AEPi, we can proliferate a culture of legacy giving. Join us — take the pledge today!
Taking the pledge is an opportunity to talk to your family and friends about the values you hope to leave behind, and why the Jewish future matters to you. Share this important commitment – our resources can show you how.
Right now, there is an unprecedented opportunity to secure the funds necessary for a vibrant Jewish future. Over the next 25 years, a mind-boggling $68 trillion will transfer to the next generation, with $6.3 trillion allocated to charity. We estimate that 20 percent of this allocation or $1.26 trillion charitable dollars will be given from Jewish donors.
By taking the Jewish Future Pledge, you can help ensure that more than $600 billion is set aside for Jewish causes when wealth is transferred from this generation to the next. Whether you’re leaving $10 or $10 million to charity in your will, you can be a part of securing the Jewish future for generations to come.
Together, let’s pledge to make a difference now and into the future. Learn more.
The Talmud states “Just as my ancestors planted for me, so too, will I plant for my children.”
For both of us, the Jewish community has played an integral role in our lives since our childhood. Growing up, our families surrounded us with Jewish experiences and demonstrated the importance of Jewish values, including giving Tzedakah. They helped us to establish a rich connection to our heritage and a strong Jewish identity. As adults, we hope to instill these same values in our children enabling them to develop a deep love of Judaism and an understanding of the importance of giving back. Just as it was done for us, we believe it is our responsibility to “plant for the future.”
We proudly sign this pledge with a hope that there will continue to be a strong and vibrant Jewish community to enrich the lives and the world of not only our children but also future generations to come.
It is our responsibility as the living to show our Families especially our children that the future of the Jewish People MUST be secure. That includes Israel and Jewish organizations locally, nationally and internationally. Only the Jewish People will truly take care of the Jewish People – it is folly to think otherwise. That means financially supporting those organizations as the Jewish Future Pledge prescribes. Don’t be shy or think others will do it for you. Step up and do your part.
Our commitment to Judaism, the Jewish People, the Jewish Community and Israel has always been based upon the teaching and belief found in the Talmud that “as my ancestors planted for me; so must I plant for my children and future generations.” We celebrate with pride our Yiddishkeit as “doogmaot” or role models for our children and grandchildren hoping to inspire them to joyfully embrace being proud Jews carrying on our sacred traditions and making the Jewish community and world a better place through the Mitzvot of Ahavat Israel, Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam.
