JCA Life & Legacy

Case Statement

The Jewish Community Alliance of Southern Maine is the central Jewish community address, dedicated to:

  • fostering Jewish life and connections through our Community Center;
  • helping those in need through our Jewish Family Services;
  • educating children through our accredited preschool and day camp, and
  • bringing together diverse voices for unified action on behalf of Jews locally, nationally, in Israel and around the world through our Community Relations Council.

Rooted in Jewish tradition and culture, we transform our values of inclusivity, opportunity and tzedakah into action through connection, education, and respectful and dignified service to those in need. We believe “Kol yisrael arevim zeh bazeh” - all Jews are responsible for each other (Talmud), and for anyone in need.

Our legacy donors are people just like you who believe that there needs to be a place to unify and serve the Jewish and broader community. We are making a promise to our children, grandchildren and generations to come that our love of tradition, love of learning and love of community continues perpetually.

We all form the tapestry of this close-knit and vibrant community, and welcome you to help secure Southern Maine's Jewish life with an enduring investment in our future. Join us in making your legacy gift today.
