Assuring a Future for our Community

"AS MY FATHERS PLANTED FOR ME, SO DO I PLANT FOR MY CHILDREN" - TALMUD
 

There are few acts more powerful than that of leaving a tangible legacy to those individuals and institutions you care most deeply about.  Planning for your legacy is a life and values-affirming act – one that reveals much about what matters most to you.

Congregation Beth El’s Legacy Giving Program will be vital to sustaining Beth El for many generations to come. All of us who care about robust Jewish communal life in the East Bay, who have benefited from Beth El’s long and rich history of providing meaningful Jewish connection and continuity to so many,  have an opportunity to help secure the future of this vital Jewish community.  And all of us, regardless of age, wealth or affiliation, have the ability to leave a legacy.  

A legacy gift of any size can be customized and structured to fit your dreams, lifestyle, family, and financial needs.  Leaving a legacy can be simple.  

Options include:

  • Bequest in a Will
  • Gift of Life Insurance
  • Gift of IRA or Pension Fund
  • Gift of Cash, Property or Assets
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
  • Charitable Lead Trust
  • Charitable Gift Annuity

Have questions? Please feel free to contact Beth El’s Legacy Giving chair, Ruth Ehrenkrantz or Executive Director, 510-848-3988, ext. 212, —to find out more.

We appreciate you informing us of your intention to make a planned gift. Please fill out a Letter of Intent, a simple form that declares your intent to establish a legacy gift.  You do not need to specify an amount.  And, you do not give any money now.
