Create a Jewish Legacy: Securing Temple Israel’s Future
“Building our endowment will help us focus more on Jewish life, and worry less about finances.”
– Beverly, synagogue leader
Like all synagogues, Beverly’s congregation faces financial challenges. That’s one reason why Create a Jewish Legacy has been valuable. The program trains Jewish leaders — professionals and volunteers — to ask for a gift from a donor’s will, trust, or retirement account.
As a result of the program’s support, Temple Israel has secured an estimated $1.1 million in future dollars. “Joining the Create a Jewish Legacy program was a wonderful opportunity to get the training and assistance we needed to amplify and solidify our endowment program.” These legacy commitments will ensure the community’s vibrancy for generations to come.
