    In 2010, the Sidney Warren Estate provided $1 million for a Science Education Centre for Youth at Tel Hai College. The gift also included $400,000 for the three year Full School Program at Danziger School and $50,000 for a three-year program for youth-at-risk in Kiryat Shmona. It is the largest gift ever made from Atlantic Canada to Israel.

Each of can make a difference in the lives of future generations by leaving a charitable legacy. Our parents and grandparents built this Jewish community. That is their legacy. Securing its future financial strength is your legacy.
