Shirley Pollack also felt very strongly about the need for Modern Orthodox schools to teach Jewish youth middot and character development, another initiative Legacy 613 expects to launch in the future.
To those who knew them, Nat Pollack was a vibrant, outgoing personality whose energy and enthusiasm belied his years. Shirley was a reserved, highly intelligent woman who was instrumental in donating the bulk of their estate to charities.
The Pollacks cared deeply about the future of the Jewish people, but sadly had no children. The Pollack Memorial Foundation is a fulfillment of their lifelong missions - Jewish education and pastoral care.
