Dear Friend of the Kaplan Center,
Daniel G. Cedarbaum z’l, was the moving force behind the Mordecai M. Kaplan Center for Jewish Peoplehood. In the course of building the Center, he created a robust entity with a motivated and informed board that is committed to carrying on Dan’s legacy through the Center’s continued work.
It is the wish of Dan’s widow, Caryn Jacobs, that his ongoing projects be completed and new projects be undertaken, consistent with the Kaplan Center’s continuing mission. Indeed, Dan’s family is fully committed to the Kaplan Center’s work.
In this spirit, Caryn is asking those who believe in the Center or simply want to honor Dan to make contributions to the Center that she will match up to a total of at least $10,000. Click here to donate.
Supporters who donate $500 will receive a signed copy of the Falk Haggadah.
Your contribution will support many exciting and important projects, a number already in mid-stream, including:
We hope and expect that the Kaplan Center will pursue its mission for decades to come. We thank you in advance for supporting the work of the Center: the organization to which Dan devoted so much of his time, skills, and resources and of which he was so proud. (We are mindful that for most of you this invitation is arriving at the end of the high holiday season with its remarkable spiritual coda of yizkor/remembering. We appreciate your act of remembering Dan through Tzedaka.)
