Trust. The Trust has touched the lives of

thousands of Jews. Buildings and programs

in Michigan, Israel and the Ukraine bear

the names of Ben and Harriett, his parents

Bessie and Morris, and immediate family

members Jeanette and Oscar Cook and

Sandra and Dr. Herman Teitel.

Naming the beneficiaries of the Trust has

been the privilege of NIL Teitel's nephew

and attorney. Gerald S. Cook. As Trustee.

Jerry recently directed a S1 million gift to

the Millennium Campaign for Detroit's

Jewish Future. to enhance the Jewish

identity of Michigan teens. The Ben N. Teitel

Israel Incentive Savings Program will receive

substantial additional support from the new

Millenium Fund. This program . provides

matching dollars for Israel experiences for

Michigan teens. Since its inception in 1991,

more than 335 teens have received -Ben

Teitel money- to help pay for their group

tours, or study in Israel. Today almost 500

students in grades 4 through 12 are currently-

saving toward future trips. The program

is administered by the Alliance for Jewish

Education at Federation. The remaining

income from the new Millennium Fund

will assist Jewish youth groups throughout

the state of Michigan.

Ben Teitel often said he should write a book

about his remarkable life. From a grateful

cornnwnity, we would say the Ben N. Teitel

Charitable Trust has created an ever-growing,

living legacy from Ben Teitel, far better than

the pages of any book.
