Do you agree with any of these?
If you agree with any of these statements, consider making a legacy commitment to Temple Beth-El. By making a bequest or planned gift to Temple Beth-El, you become part of the Legacy Circle and strengthen the future of our beloved community. Your gift will help ensure that Temple Beth-El continues to be not only a place of worship, spiritual growth, educational enrichment and community outreach, but also a place of kindness, warmth, and compassion for many generations to come.
I have made a legacy promise to the temple and am very committed to helping sustain the temple in this way. I’ve spoken to a number of people, encouraging them to leave a legacy for our community. These are the two most common concerns I hear:
For the past two years, Temple Beth-El has been partnering with the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Mercer on the Life and Legacy program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. As a result of our work building the Legacy Circle and the spirit of philanthropy at Temple Beth-El, we have earned more than $10,000 in grant monies, with more grant monies available next year.
I hope you will join our dedicated group of 29 Legacy Circle donors by making a legacy promise to Temple Beth-El.
If you would like to learn more, please reach out to me or any member of the committee.
Lillian Swickle, Chair
