L'dor V'dor: The History of B'nai Jeshurun is a documentary film, by Todd Kwait, exploring the history of our synagogue through historic recordings, photographs, interviews, and newly filmed footage.

Ensuring the Future: Endowment Campaign

As B’nai Jeshurun celebrates its 150th anniversary, we have set forth an ambitious goal of laying the foundation for a $14 million endowment. A strong endowment allows B’nai Jeshurun to achieve our greatest goals in the coming decades by creating a perpetual income source we can rely on for generations to come.

Whether an outright gift today, a planned giving tool like a gift annuity, or a bequest upon one’s passing, endowment support of B’nai Jeshurun ensures a lasting legacy and an enduring impact. A minimum of $5,000 is required to establish an unrestricted named endowment fund and a minimum of $10,000 is required to establish a restricted fund. Gifts of any size can be made to support B’nai Jeshurun’s 150th Anniversary Endowment Fund. Please contact Development Director Kim Cole to discuss creating your legacy gift at B’nai Jeshurun.
