Securing the future of TBE
Planned giving is a wonderful way to support Temple Beth Elohim’s Endowment. A strong endowment allows us to continue to be a visionary congregation, always looking to the future.
Past generations created and established our values of being a warm, intimate and engaging community that has grown to become one of the largest Reform Jewish congregations in New England. It is the challenge of this generation to further strengthen our strong foundation and build to ensure that our children and grandchildren will have the opportunities to learn, affiliate and grow through the practice of Torah (Learning), Avodah (worship) and Gemilut Chasadim (acts of loving kindness) which remain our most precious gateways to spiritual sustenance.
Jewish learning inspires our charitable giving as we seek to leave the world a better place than we found it. We hope all congregants will consider including Temple Beth Elohim in their financial and estate plans. There is no gift too small. All are meaningful and welcomed.
There are many ways you can leave a legacy, including:
- Adding a Bequest provision to your will or trust
- Gifts through your IRA
- Creating a Charitable Gift Annuity
- Adding TBE as a beneficiary to your Retirement Plan or Life Insurance policy
- Donating a gift of Real Estate
- Supporting TBE and your family with Charitable Trusts
Friends of TBE and congregants who include a gift to benefit the Temple in their estate plans are encouraged to let us know so they can be recognized in our L'Dor V’Dor Legacy Society. Please consult your legal and/or financial advisor about including the Temple in your estate plans. If you have questions about Planned Giving and Endowment gifts please contact Jillian Kohl, Director of Development, (781) 235-8419 ext. 246.
Temple Beth Elohim has been our home for almost 30 years. The life of our family since our children were small has centered around this wonderful Jewish community. TBE clergy have helped us observe the b’not mitzvah and marriages of our daughters, celebrate the naming of our grandchildren, and mark the death of our parents. Not only our children’s Jewish education but our own adult learning journeys have taken place under the loving guidance of our clergy. Read more of Carol and Eldon Clingan's story>
