You have made Temple Emanuel a part of your life, and it has made a difference. Now is the time to take the next step.

Make Temple Emanuel an enduring part of your Jewish legacy.

As you plan for the future, think about what your Jewish legacy means to you. Please consider Temple Emanuel in your will or estate plan.

It’s easier than you think and more meaningful than you know.

  • There is no minimum amount required.
  • Remember Temple Emanuel with a gift in your will, trust, retirement account or life insurance policy.
  • Your legacy gift can be funded during your lifetime or distributed from your estate.

What’s your legacy story?  For Temple Emanuel Legacy Society members Kate and Max Louik, the “Temple Emanuel Community has become a core part of our life as a family and provides a framework for how to live our lives and feel part of something bigger than self… A meaningful continuation of family.”

For Temple Emanuel Past President Betty Jo Louik Hirschfield, becoming a Legacy donor was a natural step in her lifelong commitment to Temple. Click here to watch her interview and hear more from Federation’s Sharon Perelman about the program.
