Tenenbaum Charitable Fund

In Memory of Bernie Tenenbaum


Friends and Family,


We are sad to share that our father Bernie Tenenbaum passed away on Sunday, September 13, 2020. We will always remember him as a force of nature, collecting friends, memories, and experiences, as well as Grateful Dead tapes and memorabilia.


In his honor, our family has started the Tenenbaum Charitable Fund that will support causes near and dear to his heart. We would appreciate any amount you would like to donate to organizations that build and sustain Jewish communities, support the prevention and detection of heart disease and cancer, and help children across the world attain an excellent education.


We have centralized the giving efforts and plan to match all donations up to $50,000.  If you would like to contribute, there are two ways of donating outlined below: 

At any point, if anything is unclear, please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly at

We thank you for your consideration and support.
