Celebrating the life of Jerome Chazen

The Chazen, Banon and Miller families have generously shared the dedication of The Jerome Chazen Legacy Torah in the merit of the protection of the soldiers of the IDF. Completing the Torah in his memory is a befitting way to honor the extraordinary life of Jerome Chazen, a pillar of exceptional generosity and philanthropy. The funds raised will go toward supporting the operations and programs of Boca Beach Chabad. May this Torah serve as an everlasting tribute to Jerome’s life and the remarkable legacy he leaves behind.

Fortifying the protection of our soldiers in the IDF

The Torah, the uniting force that binds all the Jewish people together, is a beacon of spiritual safety and protection. 

As our soldiers in the IDF fight to protect our nation, The Jerome Chazen Legacy Torah is being completed in the merit of their protection.

Each Parsha in this Torah is dedicated to a specific military unit in the IDF. By dedicating a letter, word, or verse, you can help keep them safe!

Jerome Chazen OBM

Jerome and Simona Chazen were blessed with three children, seven grandchildren, one great-grandson, and one great-granddaughter. Jerome passed away at his home in Upper Nyack on February 6, 2022, at age 94.

In 1976, he co founded Liz Claiborne Inc with Liz Claiborne, her husband Art Ortenberg, and Leonard Boxer and saw the company through a time that significantly changed what women wore to work.

Jerome leaves a legacy of philanthropy to a range of charitable causes. The Jerome Chazen Legacy Torah is a befitting tribute to honor this extraordinary life.
