The Rabbinical Jewish endowments are properties dedicated to specific public causes by individuals over the past 250 years. Among these causes are hospitals, yeshivas, synagogues, and many welfare and social causes. With the skyrocketing property value increase, the assets are now worth many billions of dollars. In 2018 I was the first female who entered the Rabbinical Courts as a senior jurist appointed to serve as the Inspector of Rabbinical Endowments. In this lecture I explore the future of these endowments and how they will be apportioned.
