Attendees of the recent Teen Israel Summit were toddlers 15 years ago when Edith and Laurence Weiss made a legacy gift to the Jewish Federation. Yet because educating Jewish teens about activism and advocacy was their passion — and remains the Weiss family passion — the 120 summit participants were inspired and empowered by the Federation program.
Patricia Weiss Fisher, Laurence and Edith’s daughter, said, “My brother, Steve, and I are honored to continue our parents’ partnership with the Federation through the legacy gift they made. Their gift enables programs such as the Teen Israel Summit and teen travel grants for advocacy-oriented programs in Israel to ensure our community’s Jewish teenagers can learn how to effectively advocate for social justice at home and for a strong State of Israel.”
