Harry Kevin Levine & Louis Arnold Sinkoe
We learned from both of our parents the importance of giving back and leaving the world and our community a better place. They inspired us through their actions and set examples for us to follow throughout our lives. The teachings of Judaism remind us that we are judged by our actions and not our words. It is these teachings, our own experience growing up in this community and the memory of our parents that have inspired our legacy to the Jewish Community.
We became best friends at the age of 13 when Louis was a Bar Mitzvah. After many years of love and friendship, on November 8, 2003, we celebrated our commitment to each other at Temple Beth El together with our friends and family. We are grateful to be part of a community that has been so loving and supportive of our partnership. We find great meaning and fulfillment by supporting the institutions that have given our lives so much meaning.
Having grown up in Charlotte, we both feel it is important for a Jewish community to have organizations to provide children an enriching environment that is full of opportunities to learn about Judaism and its rich traditions and values. Our parents were involved in many of these organizations and we want to honor and celebrate their commitment to these same values by leaving our own legacy to the community. It is our greatest wish that evidence of our legacy be demonstrated by our actions and our financial support of our Jewish community, so that we can ensure it will thrive and flourish to benefit future generations.
