You can help ensure Jewish tomorrows at Rudlin Torah Academy. All of us, regardless of age, wealth or affiliation, have the ability to leave a meaningful Jewish legacy. Your legacy gift of any size can be customized to fit your dreams, lifestyle, family and financial needs. 

Why Leave a Jewish Legacy? 

  • To pass on your values to your family and community. 
  • To express your desire for a vibrant Jewish future in Richmond Virginia. 
  • To continue the traditions and programs you love here. 
  • To be part of something larger than yourself. 
  • To do something for the future that you might not be in a position to do today. 


  • Reflect on your Jewish passions and your vision for a Jewish future. 
  • Have a conversation with a Rudlin Torah Academy Legacy Team member. 
  • Think about the ways to leave a future gift that make the most sense for you and your family. 
  • Formalize your commitment by making the relevant change to your will, retirement account beneficiaries, life insurance policy or other estate plan. 
  • Your legacy commitment can be a percentage of your estate or retirement account or a specific dollar amount. 
  • Complete a Confirmation of Commitment form, available from a Legacy Team member. 


Enjoy the appreciation of our school and the entire Richmond Jewish community and the nachas that comes from knowing you have taken a wonderful and important step to ensure Jewish tomorrows at Rudlin Torah Academy and beyond. 

Life and Legacy is part of a national program to dramatically increase philanthropy to local Jewish organizations for the future. 

Did you know that most Jewish dollars are left to non- Jewish causes? Let’s also provide for the vibrant future of the local Jewish organizations that enhance our lives today.
