During their lifetimes, Helen and her husband, Sam contributed generously to the VCUMCV Foundation Founders Society. They funded the Sam and Helen Kornblau Board Room at the Henrico Cultural Arts Center and made many charitable gifts to The Community Foundation. Mutual pride in their Jewish heritage and a belief in the importance of a strong Jewish education led Helen and Sam to provide vision, moral and financial support as founding members of Congregation Or Atid. There they established and funded the Helen and Sam Kornblau Religious School and a leadership gift to the Congregation Or Atid Endowment Fund. A private graveside service will be held at Greenwood Memorial Gardens for family and close friends of Helen at noon on Friday, October 13, 12609 Patterson Avenue, Henrico, Va. The family will be present at Sabbath services on Friday at 6:15 p.m., Congregation Or Atid, 10625 Patterson Avenue, Henrico, Va. Jewish tradition discourages floral arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to "Congregation Or Atid – benefit of Helen & Sam Kornblau Religious School," or The Community Foundation, "Helen & Sam Kornblau Endowment for Or Atid."
