Planned gifts ensure the continuity and strength of our community and congregation. No minimum amount is required.

A legacy gift is your way to leave financial resources to support our vitally important work for the next generation. It ensures that you will be remembered for goodness and your work and your values will continue when you are no longer here.

No matter what your income or estate value, your gift is important. All bequests and other planned gifts to Temple Rodef Shalom not otherwise designated will be deposited in the unrestricted general endowment to help ensure the financial security of our sacred community.
