Legacy Society

B’nai Jeshurun Legacy Society members are dedicated to ensuring the future of our beloved synagogue for generations to come through support of the synagogue's endowment. This new Society will acknowledge and thank donors who have chosen to leave a legacy at B’nai Jeshurun through the creation of an endowed fund, including our synagogue in their estate plans, and/or donating at least $1,000 to our endowment.

Whether an outright gift during your lifetime or a bequest upon your passing, endowed support of B’nai Jeshurun ensures a lasting legacy and an enduring impact. Contact Kim Cole to discuss becoming a Legacy Society member, to notify us that you have already included the synagogue in your estate plans or to learn more about doing so.
