Temple Endowment Fund

Preserving Our Heritage for the Future

The Temple Beth Israel Endowment Fund was established in 1984 under the direction of Jay Rudolph to receive major gifts and bequests. It was created to sustain and develop the religious, philanthropic, cultural and educational activities of the Temple. At the discretion of its Trustees, the fund may also be used for alteration, renovation or expansion of the Temple’s physical facilities.

Through the generosity of our members, the Endowment Fund is able to contribute a sum each year to the Temple’s operating fund. At the same time the fund provides an emergency source to guarantee the Temple’s future in the event of a catastrophe.

Donations of any amount, with a minimum of $10, can be made to any of the following funds. If you would like to make a donation in memory or in honor of someone, please send your check to the Endowment Fund at the Temple, indicating the honoree or person to be remembered. If you would like to establish a new fund please call the office at 383-3428 and leave your name and telephone number. A member of the Endowment Board will be glad to contact you.

Over the years many people have included the Fund in their wills, thereby becoming members of the Temple Legacy Society. This is a wonderful way to increase the fund and help insure the continuation of TBI. Anyone interested can call the Temple office to request information.
