Planned Giving - Remember us in your will or trust

The Tzipora H. Jochsberger Society
Your commitment today can keep the music playing for years to come. Donors who include Kaufman Music Center in their estate plans ensure the Center's long-term stability. Recently, the Center made the decision to rename our legacy society the "Tzipora H. Jochsberger Society,” in honor of our founder, Tzipora H. Jochsberger, who passed away at age 96 in late 2017.

Tzipora founded The Hebrew Arts School for Music and Dance in 1952, which would later become Kaufman Music Center. Tzipora knew that “the way to reach the soul was through music,” and so it is fitting that the renamed Tzipora H. Jochsberger Society stands to recognize those who have chosen to make a commitment after their lifetimes to this mission.

Your legacy gift can change lives via long-term support of any of the Center’s programs at Merkin HallLucy Moses SchoolSpecial Music School and Face the Music. As a Society member, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to ensure the future of arts education and the performing arts — beyond your lifetime.

Your Lifetime Membership Benefits Include:

  • Invitations to special receptions, events, and concerts
  • Public recognition of your membership (unless you chose to remain anonymous)
  • A deeper involvement with the life of Kaufman Music Center
